Friedrich Adolf Philippi
He was the son of a wealthy Jewish banker, a friend of the Mendelssohn family.
Converted to Christianity in 1829, he studied philosophy and theology at Berlin and Leipzig (PhD 1831), and became successively a teacher at a private school in Dresden and at the Joachimsthalsche Gymnasium at Berlin (1833).
In 1841 he was elected professor of theology at the University of Dorpat; he received the degree of D.D. "honoris causa" from the Friedrich-Alexander-University, Erlangen-Nuremberg in 1843.
