Biographical / Historical

Theodore Brohm was born on 12 September 1808. He attended the Latin Gymnasium in Altenburg between 1821 and 1827. In 1827 he enrolled as a theology student at the University of Leipzig. There he became a close friend of J.F. Buenger. While taking his theological exams he came under the influence of Martin Stephan and moved to Dresden. He became Stephan's secretary and came to America with him. After Stephan's exile, Brohm was instrumental in founding what later became Concordia Seminary. Besides writing various synodical publications, he edited thirty volumes of Luther's "Volksbibliothek". Brohm died on 24 September 1878.
