Jump to navigation Jump to search

Adolf Hausrath (1837-1909), a Protestant theologian, professor of New Testament exegesis and church history at the University of Heidelberg. Under the pseudonym of Georg Taylor he wrote several historical novels and tales. One of them, Klytia (1883), treats Anabaptism in a sensitive and attractive spirit. The miller Werner, who plays a subordinate role in it, is a splendid Anabaptist figure. Mennonitische Blätter  (1910): 93 f.; Comeniusblätter (1920): 121.) Of Hausrath's other books mention should be made of Weltverbesserer im Mittelalter (3 vols., 1891-95), and the novel, Die Albigenserin (1902). Klytia was reprinted after World War I by H. P. Krehbiel at Newton, Kansas.
