About the Cyclopedia

Jung-Stilling, Johann Heinrich

(Heinrich Jung; Heinrich Stilling; 1740–1817). B. Grund, near Hilchenbach, Westphalia; prof. Kaiserslautern, Heidelberg, and Marburg; friend of J. W. v. Goethe* and J. G. v. Herder*; mystic; theosophist. Adopted name Stilling because of sympathy with Pietists of the lower Rhine, who were called “die Stillen im Lande”; (cf. Ps 35:20 in Ger.). See also Hasenkamp, Johann Gerhard.
