Excerpt from Cornelius the Centurion The following brief account of Frederick Adolph Krummacher will probably prove not uninteresting to those who appreciate the Christian sentiment and cultivated mind displayed in "Cornelius the Centurion," the production of one who has long been eminently distinguished among his countrymen, both as a clergyman and as an author, in the higher departments of literature. F. A. Krummacher was born at Tecklenburgh, in Westphalia, on the 13th July, 1768. After having been employed as Professor of Theology in the University of Duisburg, he became a minister in the Reformed Church at Krefeld in 1807, where he undertook the cure of souls, as more congenial to his feelings.
