Karl Daub, a German theologian, born in Cassel, March 20, 1765, died in Heidelberg, Nov. 22, 1836. He was educated at the gymnasium of Cassel and the university of Marburg, where he remained three years as a tutor. In 1794 he became professor of philosophy at Hanau, and a few months later of theology at Heidelberg, retaining the latter post till his death. His writings are of great value from their reflecting in succession the influence upon theology exercised by the several schools of philosophy which gained ascendancy during his time. His Lehrbuch der Katechetik (1801) is written in the spirit of Kant's philosophical criticism. His Theologumena (1806) and Hei-delberger Studien (1808) follow the method of Schelling's philosophy of identity. Judas Is-charioth, oder Betrachtungen uber das Bose im Verhdltnisse zum Guten (1816), is full of mysticism. His last work, Die dogmatische The-ologie jetziger Zeit (1833), is written in accordance with the dialectics of Hegel. His theological and philosophical lectures were collected after his death by Marheineke and Dittenberger (7 vols., Berlin, 1838-'43). An analysis of Daub's theology may be found in Strauss, Cha-raTcteristiken und Kritiken (Leipsic, 1839).
