Mosheim, Johann Lorenz von (1694-1755), the German ecclesiastical historian, was born at Liibeck. After holding the chair of theology at Helmstedt for several years, he became professor at Gottingen and chancellor of that university. His greatest work was the Institutiones Historic? Ecelesiasticce, finished in 1726, and re-issued in 1755. In 1832 it was translated into English by Dr. James Murdock. He wrote several other works on theology and Church history.
