Tischendorf, LOBEGOTT FRIEDRICH KONSANTIN VON (1815-74), one of the greatest of Blblical commentators, was born in Germany and studied theology at Leipzig, where he afterwards became professor. He travelled extensively in the East, and procured most valuable materials for his revision of the text of the New Testament of which the eighth edition appeared in 1869-72. Nearly all his labours are in the direction of textual criticism of the New Testament, and his efforts are highly prized by Biblical scholars.
