Rambach, Johann Jakob
Rambach, Johann Jakob was born at Halle Feb. 24, 1693, and died April 19, 1735, at Giessen, where he was professor of theology and first superintendent. During his comparatively short life he devoted himself to sacred studies, and produced some valuable works. Besides assisting Michaelis in the preparation of his Hebrew Bible, and of his Adnotationes Uberaiores in Hagiographa, he was the author of Institutiones Hermeneuticoe Sactrae, of which the eighth edition appeared in 1764: — Exercitationes Hermen., sive p. Institute Hermen. (Jena, 1728; 2d ed. 1741): — Comment. Hermen. de Sensus Mystici Criteriis (ibid. 1728, 1731). His other works are dogmatical and polemical.
