Panzer, Johann Friedrich Heinrich
Panzer, Johann Friedrich Heinrich son of the preceding, also noted as a German theologian, was born at Nuremberg March 25, 1764. He was educated at the universities in Altdorf and Erlangen, and devoted himself as much to philosophy as to theology. He finally desired to enter the ministry, and became catechite at the St. James's Church in his native place. In 1797 he was made pastor at Eltersdorf and Tannenlohe. During the Prussian-Nuremberg controversy he was dismissed, but the Prussian government gave him an appointment as pastor at Baireuth. He died Nov. 15, 1815. Panzer wrote several valuable monographs treating of chapters in the history of the Reformation.
