Raumer, Karl Georg Von

Raumer, Karl Georg von doctor of philosophy and theology, brother of the well-known historian Frederic (q.v.), was born April 7, 1783, at Wurlitz, in Anhalt-Dessau. Having graduated at the Joachimsthal Gymnasium in Berlin, he went to Gottingen for the study of languages, history, and poetry. From Gottingen he went to Halle in 1803, where he attended the lectures of Wolf and Becker, and where he also made the acquaintance of Steffens, who introduced him in 1805 to the famous geologist Werner at Freiberg. In 1808 we see Raumer at Paris, in 1810 at Berlin; in 1811 he is professor and member of council for mining at Breslau. The Franco-Prussian war, in which he acted as adjutant to general Gneisenau, being over, he was called in 1819 as professor to Halle, where he remained till 1823, being obliged to leave the place in consequence of distrust aroused against him. He then acted as tutor in the Dittmar Educational Institution at Nirunberg, when, in 1827, he was called as professor to Erlangen, where he died, June 2,1865. Raumer took a very lively and active interest in all matters promoting the kingdom of God. He is best known as the author of Palumstina (Leipsic, 1835, and often since): — Der- Zug der Istraeliten atis Aegypten nutch Ctanaman (ibid. 1837): — Beitrate zur biblischet Geographie (ibid. 1843): -Geschichte desr aidatgopgik (3d ed.
