Schnurrer, Christian Friedrich

Schnurrer, Christian Friedrich an eminent Orientalist, professor and preacher at Tübingen, was born at Cannstadt Oct. 28,1742. He studied at Tübingen, Göttingen, Jena, and Leipsic. Among his teachers were Michaelis, Ernesti, Dathe, Semler, Teller, and Gellert. He visited England and France to extend his familiarity with Oriental MSS. On his return in 1770 he became professor at Tübingen, and began the exegesis of the Old Test. But when, in 1772, he was placed at the head of the theological training school, he was in the place for which his talents and learning best fitted him. Here he labored with great success for thirty-two years. In 1806 he was made a prelate and brought into close connection with the government. He died at Stuttgart Nov. 10, 1822. Among the many writings of Schnurrer are, Bibliotheca Arabica (1799-1806, 7 parts): — Academic Addresses (in Latin [Tüb. 1828]): — Erläuterung (historical [Tüb. 1798]). See Weber, Schnurrer's Leben (1823); Herzog, Real-Encyklop. 20, 714-718. (J.P.L.)
