About Philippe Naude

Also known as: Phillip de Alterer (Phillip the elder); Naudäus

Born in Metz.

French Huguenot refugee to Berlin 1687. (See: extracts from "Memoirs")

  • Page to a prince
  • Cloth merchant
  • Professor at the Gymnasium of Joachimsthal
  • Member of the Berlin Academy from 1701.

In 1667 - 1670 he was at the Court of the Duke of Sachsen-Marksuhl (later Sachsen-Einenach) in Altkirken in the Westerwalt as page and playmate to the Crown Prince. There after he kept himself busy in his father's business but dedicated himself to the study of Mathematics and Theology. In 1684 Philippe, his wife and a servant lived in the rue de Vincent in the parish of Saint-Livier in Metz. During 1685 he, like his parents and other family members, had to leave his fatherland and flee to Hanau via Saarbrüken where he tried to make a living as a dyer and lacemaker. In the spring of 1687 he heeded the call of the Elector of Brandenberg and went to Berlin where he lectured in Mathematics at the Gymnasium of Joachinsthal.

Recommendations by the Margravine of Ansbach, the sister of his princely companion of his youth, assisted him; he received an appointment as Professor. In 1696 he was appointed court-mathematician and Professor at the Academie of the Cost, 1701 as a member of the Royal Society of Science and in 1704 as a Professor at the Ftirsten- und Ritterakademie in Berlin. His scientific works mainly dealt with questions of theology.
