Rubino, Joseph Carl Friedrich

Rubino, Joseph Carl Friedrich, a German doctor and professor of philology and ancient history, was born Aug. 15. 1799, at Fritzlar, of Jewish parentage. Having completed his studies at Heidelberg and Göttingen, he lived from 1820 to 1831 in private at Cassel, where he became intimately acquainted with the most prominent men of his time. In 1831 he was appointed professor at Marburg, and April 24, 1842, he openly professed the Christian faith. Up to his death, April 10, 1864, he lectured at Marburg, having been invested several times with the highest offices of the university. His last words were, "For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ" (1Co 3:11). The great veneration in which Rubino was held is best shown in Dr. Grau's dedication of his work, Semiten und Indogermanen, to his fatherly friend Rubino.
