Valerius Herberger

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Valerius Herberger (21 April 1562 – 18 May 1627) was a German Lutheran preacher and theologian.


He was born at Fraustadt, Silesia (now Wschowa in Poland). He studied for three years at Freystadt in Silesia (now Kożuchów in Poland), and then entered the University of Frankfort-on-the-Oder. In 1582 he went to Leipzig University.

In 1584 he became a teacher in Fraustadt, in 1590 deacon, and in 1599 pastor. Sigismund III Vasa ordered his congregation to cede their house of worship to the Roman Catholics; Herberger then acquired two private residences, which he gradually transformed into a church. He died in Fraustadt.


In 1613 an epidemic broke out at Fraustadt, and under those circumstances Herberger composed his only hymn, Valet will ich dir geben ("O world, so vain, I leave thee"). It was published in 1614 with a melody by Melchior Teschner.[1]

He was a prolific writer. His most comprehensive work is Magnalia Dei de Jesu scripturæ nucleo et medulla (12 parts, 1601–18), meditations on the Pentateuch, Joshua, Judges, and Ruth, emphasising the revelation of Christ in the Old Testament. Herberger also wrote commentaries on Revelation xxi.-xxii. and published them as Himmelsches Jerusalem (1609). Passionszeiger (1611), Trauerbinden or funeral sermons (7 vols., 1611–21), and Evangelische Herzpostille (1613) are collections of sermons which may be mentioned.

After his death appeared Epistolische Herzpostille, 97 Predigten über Jesus Sirach, and Stoppelpostille (sermons on various texts). Several of his works were reprinted in the nineteenth century:
