Weigel, Christopher a German engraver, was born at Redwitz, in Bohemia, in 1654. After visiting various German cities, he settled in Nuremberg, where he died in 1725. His principal work was a set of Bible plates engraved from his own designs, entitled Sacra Scriptuat Loquens in Imaginibus, etc., published in 1690. They were executed with the graver. He is also said to have engraved in mezzotinto and to have carried on an extensive commerce in prints. See Spooner, Biog. Hist. of the Fine Arts, s.v.
