HANS HINRICH WENDT (1853— ), German Protestant theologian, was born in Hamburg on the 18th of June 1853. After studying theology at Leipzig, Gottingen and Tubingen, he became in 1885 professor ordinarius of systematic theology at Heidelberg, and in 1893 was called to Jena. His work on the teaching of Jesus (Die Lehre Jesu, 1886—189o; Eng. trans. of second part, 1892) made him widely known. He also edited several editions (5th to 8th, 188o—1898) of the Commentary on the Acts of the Apostles in H. A. W. Meyer's series. In May 1904 he delivered two addresses in London on " The Idea and Reality of Revelation, and Typical Forms of Christianity," as the Essex Hall Lectures (published, 1904). His works include: Die christliche Lehre von der menschlichen Vollkommenheit (1882), Der Erfahrungsbeweis fur die Wahrheit des Christentums (1897), and Das Johannesevangelium (1900; Eng. trans., 1902).
