Rodigast, Samuel

Rodigast, Samuel, rector of the gymnasium of the Gray Convent in Berlin from 1698 to 1708, and previously adjunct professor in the University of Jena. He was intimately acquainted with Philip J. Spener to the time of his death, in 1705. His claim to recognition in this place lies in his having composed the hymn Was Gott thut, das ist wohlgethan (1675), which has become a classic, and is used wherever the German tongue is known. It was a favorite with Frederick William III of Prussia, and was rendered on the occasion of his funeral, June 11, 1840.
