Kerner, Andreas Justinus, was born at Ludwigsberg in Wurtemberg in 1786, and was educated for the medical profession at Tubingen. He settled at Weinsberg, and in the intervals of practice amused himself by lyric compositions, which had a great success. Chief among these are Travelling Shadows by the Magic-lantern Player, and The Msionary of Prevorst, wherein he dealt with the phenomena of animal magnetism. He died in 1862.
