[German Version]

(Aug 3, 1869, Döteberg near Hannover – Jan 29, 1926, Tübingen) belonged to the History of Religions School. He acquired his postdoctoral lecture qualification in Göttingen in 1902, became full professor for the NT in Marburg in 1908, and was awarded professorships in Bonn (1920) and Tübingen (1923). From 1897 to 1917, he edited the Theologische Rundschau in cooperation with W. Bousset. His main field of interest was the study of NT cult and of its origins in the history of religions, but also the establishment of Christianity by Jesus or Paul.
