Mathias Haffenreffer

Matthias Hafenreffer (1561–1617) was a German orthodox Lutheran theologian in the Lutheran scholastic tradition. Born at Lorch (Württemberg), he was professor at Tübingen from 1592 until his death in 1617. He was a motivating teacher with a charismatic influence upon his students. He combined strict faithfulness to the Book of Concord with a peaceful disposition. Among those who enjoyed his instruction and correspondence was the astronomer Johannes Kepler. His chief work was his system of doctrine under the title Loci Theologici (1600).
