About Georg Heinrich Ewald

Georg Heinrich August von Ewald (1803–1875) was a German theologian and professor who specialized in Asian studies, the Old Testament, and philosophy. He was born a son of a linen-weaver. Professor at the University of Göttingen for 10 years, Ewald was expelled for protesting against King Ernst August. He went on to become a professor at Tübingen, but returned to Göttingen after the liberal constitution was put in place again. Ewald wrote several scholarly works, including History of Israel and Commentary on the Prophets of the Old Testament.
