Petrus (Pieter) Schagen, born about 1725 at Amsterdam, died 11 November 1753, at Westzaan, was a son of Marten Schagen. He studied medicine, obtaining his MD degree at Utrecht in 1747; he then studied theology at the Amsterdam Lamist Seminary in 1747-51. From 1751 until his early death he served as preacher in the Frisian congregation of Westzaan-Zuid, practicing medicine at the same time. Petrus Schagen was one of the last of the many Dutch ministers who combined the ministry with a medical practice. He published a few medical studies and a treatise in Latin on earthquakes (1747). His theological-philosophical tract Oratio de Summo Bono was published at Haarlem, 1741. After his death his father edited five of his sermons: De Natuur en Zalige gevolgen van't ware Christelijke Leven (Haarlem, 1755), together with a funeral sermon, which Marten Schagen preached in commemoration of his son at Westzaan on 16 December 1753, entitled 't Genadeloon der welaengelegde Twee Talenten.
