Johann Heinrich Heidegger

Johann Heinrich Heidegger (* 1. July 1633 in Bäretswil in the inhabitant of zurich upper country; † 18. January 1698 in Zurich) was a reformed theologian from Switzerland.

He became a professor of the Hebrew language in Heidelberg, 1659 professor of theology at the high school in stone ford and in Zurich 1665 professor of the moral and 1667 professor of theology.

While Heidegger used itself 1686 for an agreement of the reformed church with the lutherischen, he polemisierte against the Roman-catholic church violently, approximately in its writings De fide decretorum concilii Tridentini of quaestiones and Anatome concilii Tridentini. He was an important representative of the reformed Föderaltheologie, took part in the drawing up of the Consensus Helveticus and defended against Louis Cappel the verbal inspiration of the Hebrew Bible into the points of vowel.
