SCHWABE, Johann Friedrich Heinrich.
(1779 - 1834)

(Born: Eichelborn, Weimar, Germany, 14 March 1779; Died: Darmstadt, Hesse, Germany, 29 December 1834) German theologian.

Schwabe studied theology at the University of Jena and through lectures on natural history and philosophy, he became interested in mineralogy. From 1801-2 he was the first Privatdocent at the University of Jena. He was then sent to Wormstadt in Thürigen as a parson. He remained in that position from 1802-21. In 1821, Schwabe was appointed superintentant and the head of the church at Neustadt [now in Poland]. In 1833, he moved to Weimar where he accepted a post as senior parson.
