Tittmann, Johann August Heinrich
Tittmann, Johann August Heinrich a German divine, was born at Langensalza, Aug. 1,1773. He studied at Wittenberg and Leipsic, and in 1796 became one of the theological professors in the latter of these universities. He died Dec. 30, 1831. His writings are numerous, and belong to various departments of sacred science. The following only need to be specified here: Theolog. Encyklop. (1798): —De Synonymis N.T.(1829), the second part of which was edited after his death by Becher (1832); the whole, with some appended dissertations, translated into English by Craig (Edinb. Bib. Cabinet [1833- 37, 2 vols.]): —and his edition of the Greek New Test., "ad fidem optimortm librorum recens." (1820-24). His polemical writings, in which he labors to reconcile theology with philosophy, and to defend evangelical truth against rationalism, are the most valuable productions of his pen.
