Bogatzky, Karl Heinrich von (1690-1744). German theological author, born at Jankowe in Lower Silesia. He studied divinity at Halle from 1715 to 1718, and was for some time in the service of different Silesian nobles. He afterwards organised an orphanage at the Silesian village of Glaucha. In 1746, at the death of the Duke of Sachsen Saalfeld, in whose family he had lived, he retired to Halle and gave his time to writing devotional books. His best known work is The Golden Treasury. He also wrote hymns and an autobiography.
