About Samuel Lieberkühn
Samuel Lieberkühn (1710-1777), the son of a goldsmith, studied theology at Halle and Jena, where he came into contact with Herrnhut (Bohemian and Moravian Brethren: II). Appointed as a missionary to the Jews in 1736, he exercised his ministry independently (after 1739 in Amsterdam). His deep involvement in the Jewish world and the Hebrew language led in 1756 to a dispute with Nicolaus von Zinzendorf.
