From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Heinrich August Wilhelm Meyer (January 10, 1800 - June 21, 1873), was a German Protestant divine, born at Gotha.

He studied theology at Jena, and eventually became (1841) pastor, member of the consistory, and superintendent at Hanover.

He is chiefly noted for his valuable Kritischexegetischer Kommentar zum Neuen Testament (16 vols.), which began to appear in 1832, was completed in 1859 with the assistance of J. E. Huther, Friedrich Düsterdieck and G. K. G. Lünemann, and has been translated into English. New editions have been undertaken by such scholars as A. B. Ritschl, B. Weiss, H. Wendt, K. F. G. Heinrici, W. Beyschlag and F. A. E. Sieffert.

Meyer also published an edition of the New Testament, with a translation (1829) and a Latin version of the symbolical books of the Lutheran Church (1830).

He is not to be confused with Johann Friedrich von Meyer (1772-1849), the senator of Frankfurt, who published a translation of the Bible in 1819 (Die heilige Schrift -in berichtigter Übersetzung mit kurzen Anmerkungen; 2nd ed. 1823; 3rd ed., 1855).
