Theodor Keim (1825–1878)

Keim, Karl Theodor (kīm). A noted German theologian; born at Stuttgart, Dec. 17, 1825; died at Giessen, Nov. 17, 1878. While a disciple of the modern critical school of theology (of Strauss, Baur, and Renan) he strove to reconcile it with the old faith. He wrote: ‘The Historical Christ’ (3d ed. 1866) and the great work ‘History of Jesus of Nazareth’ (3 vols., 1867–72).
