Osiander, Lucas (2),

called THE YOUNGER, son of the preceding and brother of Andreas the Yoaunger, was born at Stuttgard, May 6, 1571. He became professor of theology at Tubingen in 1619, and died there Aug. 10, 1638. He was much given to controversy, and wrote against the Jesuits, the Reformed Church, the Anabaptists, the Schwenckfeldians, etc., and was accused of having started the difficulties which divided the theologians of Tubingen and those of Giessen on the doctrine of the self-abasement of Christ. His immoderate attacks against J. Arnd's Wahre Christenthum, in 1623, led him into very disagreeable disputes. He wrote sermons and numerous theological works, mostly polemical. See Jocher, Allg. Gelehr. Lexikon; Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, 38:905. (J. N. P.)
