Pauli, Carl Wilhelm

Pauli, Carl Wilhelm a German jurist, was born at Lubeck, December 18, 1792. He studied jurisprudence at Gottingeli and Tuibingen, and occupied the highest positions in his profession at his native place, where he died, March 18, 1879. For a number of years he belonged to the officers of his Church, which he served everywhere, and for which he undertook the publication of a new hymn-book in 1832. Having thus become interested in hymnology, he continued his studies, and published as their result, Geschichte der

lubeckischen Gesangbucher und Beurtheilung des Gegenwartigen (Lubeck, 1875). He was a warm friend of the mission among the heathens, and for a number of years stood at the head of the missionary society at Liibeck. To this period belong his Der lubeckische Verein zur Beforderung der, evangelischen Mission unter den Heiden im Jahre 1856 (ibid. i857) and Nothgedrungene Erklarung in Sachen des lubeckischen Vereins (ibid. 1857); His essay, Peter Heyling, der erste deutsche Missiondr, in Warneck's Allgem. Missions-Zeitschrift (May, 1876), is a valuable contribution to the history of missions and the Church. (B.P.)
