]akob Mannhardt, the fourth son of Johann Wilhelm Mannhardt, was born 4 October 1801. He completed the Gymnasium course at Lübeck, living in the home of the father of the poet Emanuel Geibel, studied theology at the universities of Tübingen (the first Mennonite student of theology) and Bonn, became Mennonite pastor at Friedrichstadt in 1828, and at Danzig in 1836, and died there on 12 May 1885. In 1854 he founded the first German Mennonite periodical, the Mennonitische Blatter, which he published until 1874, at first bimonthly and later monthly, supported by his colleagues B. C. Roosen, Johannes van der Smissen, Johannes Risser, Johannes Molenaar, and Heinrich Neufeld. As a preacher his pious faith and unfailing charity won him the highest regard, which was given rarely beautiful expression on the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of his ordination.
