Friedrich Gottlieb Süskind

Friedrich Gottlieb Süskind (February 17, 1767 – November 12, 1829) was a German Evangelical theologian born in Neuenstadt am Kocher.

For several years (1783–1791) he was a student at the Protestant seminar of Tübingen, followed by extensive travels throughout Germany. Afterwards he was repentant at Tübinger Stift, followed by a vicariate in Stuttgart (1795), and later serving as Diakonus (deacon) in Urach. In 1798 he became a professor at the University of Tübingen, and in 1805 moved to Stuttgart, where he was appointed Oberhofprediger and Konsistorialrat.

Süskind was a disciple of Gottlob Christian Storr (1746–1805), and a prominent member of the so-called Ältere Tübinger Schule (Older Tübingen School). Within this group he excelled in the field of dialectics, and also served as apologist in defense of Biblical Supranaturalism.

From 1803 to 1816 he was editor of the Magazin für christliche Dogmatik und Moral (Magazine for Christian Dogmatics and Morals). In 1809 he was involved in the liturgical reorganization in Württemberg.
