Antonius van der Linde was born 1833 at Haarlem, Holland and died 1893 at Heidelberg, Germany. He was educated at the expense of the Haarlem Mennonite congregation, of which his parents were members. While he was a schoolteacher he started to study philosophy. At first he was a rationalist, then a follower of Hegel. About 1855 he left the Mennonite Church and joined a strictly orthodox Reformed group who had separated from the main Reformed Church, and served for a short period as a preacher. He soon had left it, and studied philosophy at the University of Göttingen, Germany, obtaining his Ph.D. degree in 1862. Later he was employed in the Royal Prussian Library in Berlin. He wrote a large number of books and papers on very different subjects; for Mennonite history his bibliographical study on David Joris, published at The Hague in 1867, is of interest.
