Johann Heinrich Alsted
He was some time professor of philosophy and theology at Herborn, in Nassau, and afterwards at Weissenburg in Transylvania, where he remained till his death in 1638. He was a prolific writer, and his Encyclopaedia (1630), the most considerable of the earlier works of that class, was long held in high estimation.
