Eduard Huschke

Georg Philipp Eduard Huschke was a German jurist and authority on church government. He was born at Hannoversch Münden on 26 June 1801 and died at Breslau on 7 February 1886. In 1817 Huschke went to Göttingen to study law. He was attracted by Savigny in Berlin, but returned to Göttingen and established himself as privatdozent, lecturing on the orations of Cicero, on Gaius and the history of law; then he was appointed professor in Rostock. He accepted a call to Breslau as professor of Roman law in 1827.

Soon after his arrival he became interested in the dissensions caused by the Evangelical Union which were forced upon the orthodox Old Lutherans by the state rulers, and took a prominent part in them. Huschke tried to solve the problem practically as soon as he came to Breslau. Out of the dispute originated the independent Lutheran Church, and Huschke, as the defender of its rights, was appointed head of the supreme church college.

Huschke was intensely hostile to the papacy, in which he saw the realization of a demoniac power. He was an eager student of the apocalypse. The fruit of his studies was a work entitled Das Buch mit sieben Siegeln (Dresden, 1860). His exegesis, however, is not always sound. His ideas on church government are laid down in Die streitigen Lehren von der Kirche, dem Kirchenamt, dem Kirchenregiment und der Kirchenregierung (Leipzig, 1863). In addition, Huschke published many important writings on law.
