Chapter Summary

This appendix presents Conrad Bröske's autobiography of 1710. Conrad Bröske was born on March 23, 1660, in Balhorn in the region of Gudensberg. In 1667 Conrad began Latin studies with the Balhorn clergyman at that time, Conrad Winter of Cassel. In 1678 Bröske went to Marburg where he began attending public lectures, continuing there until 1682. In 1683 he traveled to Geneva where he attended lectures by the famed theologians Mestresat, Turretin and Tronchin as well as hearing other learned preachers. In 1684 he was called away from Geneva to Offenbach near Frankfurt as Second Preacher. In 1685 Bröske traveled to Utrecht where he heard the famed theology professors Leidecker, Mastricht, Witsius and Halerius. He returned to Offenbach where he had been called to serve as Court Preacher and First Preacher. He accepted the call and was promptly ordained by the church council at a ceremony held in Heidelberg.
