Johann Heinrich Heidegger (July 1, 1633 – July 18, 1698), Swiss theologian, was born at Bäretswil, in the Canton of Zürich. He studied at Marburg and at Heidelberg, where he became the friend of J. L. Fabricius, and was appointed professor extraordinarius of Hebrew and later of philosophy. In 1659, he was called to Steinfurt to fill the chair of dogmatics and ecclesiastical history, and in the same year he became doctor of theology of Heidelberg. His writings are largely controversial, though without being bitter, and are in great part levelled against the Roman Catholic Church.

dbo:abstract
  • Johann Heinrich Heidegger (* 1. Juli 1633 in Bäretswil im Zürcher Oberland; † 18. Januar 1698 in Zürich) war ein reformierter Theologe aus der Schweiz. Er wurde Professor der Hebräischen Sprache in Heidelberg, 1659 Professor der Theologie an der Hohen Schule in Steinfurt und in Zürich 1665 Professor der Moral und 1667 Professor der Theologie. 1661 heiratete er Elisabeth von Duno, Tochter eines schweizerischen Geschafsmannes. Während sich Heidegger 1686 für eine Einigung der reformierten Kirche mit der lutherischen einsetzte, polemisierte er gegen die Römisch-katholische Kirche heftig, etwa in seinen Schriften De fide decretorum concilii Tridentini quaestiones und Anatome concilii Tridentini. Er war ein bedeutender Vertreter der reformierten Föderaltheologie, beteiligte sich an der Abfassung des Consensus Helveticus und verteidigte gegen Louis Cappel die Verbalinspiration der Hebräischen Bibel bis in die Vokalpunkte. Der Impresario Johann Jacob Heidegger war der jüngere seiner zwei Söhne. (de)

He studied at Marburg and at Heidelberg, where he became the friend of J. L. Fabricius, and was appointed professor extraordinarius of Hebrew and later of philosophy. In 1659, he was called to Steinfurt to fill the chair of dogmatics and ecclesiastical history, and in the same year he became doctor of theology of Heidelberg. In 1660 he revisited Switzerland and, after marrying Elisabeth von Duno, he travelled in the following year to Holland, where he made the acquaintance of Johannes Cocceius. He returned in 1665 to Zürich, where he was elected professor of moral philosophy. Two years later he succeeded Johann Heinrich Hottinger in the chair of theology, which he occupied until his death, having declined an invitation in 1669 to succeed Cocceius at Leiden, as well as a call to Groningen. Heidegger was the principal author of the Formula Consensus Helvetica in 1675, which was designed to unite the Swiss Reformed churches, but had an opposite effect. Wilhelm Gass describes him as the most notable of the Swiss theologians of the time. His writings are largely controversial, though without being bitter, and are in great part levelled against the Roman Catholic Church. (en)
