BERNHARD STADE (1848–1906), German Protestant theologian, was born on the 11th of May 1848, at Arnstadt, in Thuringia. He studied at Leipzig and Berlin, and in course of time became (1875) professor ordinarius at Giessen. Once a member of Franz Delitzsch's class, he became a convinced adherent of the newest critical school. In 1881 he founded the Zeitschrift filr alttestamentliche Wissenschaft, which he continued to edit; and his critical history of Israel (Geschichte des Volks Israel, 2 vols., 1887–1888; vol. ii. in conjunction with Oscar Holtzmann) has made him very widely known. With C. Siegfried he has revised and edited the Hebrew lexicon, Hebr. Worterbuch zum Allen Testament (1892-1893). Stade's other works include Uber die alttestamentlichen Vorstellungen vom Zustand neck dem Tode (1877), Lehrbuch der hebr. Grammatik (vol. i., 1879), Ausgewahlte akademische Reden and Abhandlungen (1899), and Biblische Theologie des Allen Testaments (1905, &c.). He died on the 6th of December 1906. See O. Pfleiderer, Development of Theology (1890).
