Master of Sacred Theology (STM)
Samuel Simon Schmucker was a leading figure of the Lutheran Church in America during the first half of the nineteenth century. He was born February 28, 1799, and died on July 26, 1873. His main labor was as a professor at Gettysburg seminary, where he served from 1826 until his retirement in 1864. By his labors and leadership in the General Synod he advanced many doctrinal formulations that had been considered foreign to Lutheranism and which were severely attacked during his later years. It is the purpose of this paper to investigate the possible causes and influences that led to the theological positions of this man.
