JULIUS AUGUST LUDWIG WEGSCHEIDER (1771-1849), German theologian, was born at Kiibelingen, Brunswick, on the 17th of September 1771, studied theology at Helmsta.dt, was tutor in a Hamburg family 1795-1805, Repetent at Gottingen, professor of theology at Rinteln in Hesse (18o6-1815), and at Halle from 1815. In 183o he (with his colleague Wilhelm Gesenius) was threatened with deposition for teaching rationalism, and though he retained his office he lost his influence, which passed to F. A. Tholuck and Julius Miller. He died on the 27th of January 1849. His chief works were Uber die von der neuesten Philosophie geforderte Trennung der Moral von der Religion (18o4); Einleitung in des Evangelium Johannis (18o6); and Institutiones theologicae dogmaticae (1815), to which W. Steiger's Kritik des Rationalismus in Wegscheider's Dogmatik (183o) was a reply.
