Description
Antique 1726 Copper Engraving

Portrait of Johann Gerhard Meuschen, (1680-1743), unsigned, inscription, "Ioh. Gerhard, Meuscheni," dated "ANNO CDCCXXVI. AETAT XLVII" (1726, age 47).

Johann Gerhard Meuschen (May 4, 1680 - December 15, 1743) was a German Lutheran theologian born in Osnabruck.

Meuschen studied theology and Oriental languages at the University of Jena, and in 1703 became an associate professor of philosophy at the University of Kiel. Afterwards, he served as a minister in Osnabruck (1705), the Hague, (1707) and Hanau (1716). In 1723, he moved to Coburg, where he was appointed community Kirchenrath, and in the meantime taught classes in theology at the gymnasium. He worked in Coburg for the remainder of his life.

With others, he was co-author of "Novum Testamentum ex Talmude et antiquitatibus Hebraeorum illustratum" (1736), which was a collection of treatises of the New Testaments from Jewish writings. Meuschen was an outspoken opponent of Jesuitism. In 1707, he released an anti-Jesuit pamphlet titled "Nugae venales Rullenses", a publication that was publicly condemned and burned.

Other noted works by Meuschen include:

"Heilige Moralien ueber die Passion", 1726;
"Ceremonialia electionis Pontificum Romanorum", 1731;
"Postilla mystica evangelica das ist: der geheime geistliche sinn der Sonn- und Festtags- Evangelien...", 1733;
"Vitae Summorum Dignitate Et Ervditione Virorum Ex Rarissimis Monumentis Literato Orbi Restitutae", (1735-1741, four parts);
"Madonna et Santa Casa di Loretto, oder die Liebe Frau und das Heil-Hauss zu Loretto".

Provenance:
This plate comes from a collection of engravings bound by the German art collector "A.L." The finalized collection of hand-numbered engravings is dated 1762 which provides additional warranty that the engravings are authentic and created prior to 1762; auctioned in London, UK.

Certification of Authenticity will be included upon buyers request.

Artwork will be mailed unframed.
