Vogel, Matthuens

Vogel, Matthuens a Lutheran theologian of Germany, was born Sept. 7, 1519, at Nuremberg. He studied at Tübingen and Wittenberg, and was called in 1544 as pastor to Lauffen, not far from Nuremberg. In 1548 he was appointed deacon at St. James's in his native place, but had to leave it in 1549 on account of his opposition to the Formulae interimistic. He went to Wehlau, where he labored for four years, and in 1554 he was called as cathedral preacher to Konigsberg, occupying also from 1557 the theological chair. The Osiandrian controversy made it necessary for him in 1566 to leave the realm of Prussia, and he went into Suabia, was pastor at Hornberg in 1568, in 1569 pastor and superintendent at Geppingen, and in 1580 counselor and abbot at Alpirspach. He died Dec. 3 1591. He is known as the author of Thesaurus Theologicus ex Sola Sacra Scriptura Depromsptus. See Fischlin, Afemtoria Theologorum Wirtenbeigensium; id.
