Johann Gottfried Scheibel.

Johann Gottfried Scheibel (September 16, 1783 – March 21, 1843) was a Lutheran leader.

Education and Ministry

Johann Scheibel was born in Breslau, Silesia, and studied at the University of Halle from 1801 to 1804. He went on from there to be the assistant minister at St Elisabeth's church in Breslau from 1804 to 1818. He was theological until 1830 when he was suspended from his post.

Scheibel came to prominence as a leader of the Old Lutherans in the dissent against the Prussian Union. He spoke, preached and wrote against the Union, which consequently resulted in the suspension from his post as theological professor. Undaunted, Scheibel continued in his dissent as he moved to new cities. He was at Dresden in 1832 where he was ordered to leave that same year. Then Hermsdorf until 1836 where likewise he was asked to leave, then Glauchau and Nuremberg. He died at Nuremberg about the time that he was being restored to his post as professor at Breslau.
