[textualcriticism] seeking bio information on Norbert Fickermann
- Hi Folks,
I am looking for biographic information on Norbert Fickermann.
Fickermann was involved with Old Latin textual matters and his original writings appear to span from 1825 to about 1861. He collaborated with Karl Strecker and Carl Erdmann on some papers. In a couple of places he is referenced as Eickerman, and his first name as Norben (although it seems there is a later Norbert Eickermann as well in the 1970s on "von Herrn Dr. Norbert
Eickermann, Stadtarchiv Soest").
Here is his Worldcat info, the later editions with Karl Strecker (1861-1945) were reprints.
Bruce Metzger references Fickerman's untranslated book in his discussion of the heavenly witnesses.
"The silence of Augustine, contrary to prevailing opinion, cannot be cited as evidence against the genuineness of the Comma. He may indeed have known it. ... " - Annotated bibliography of the textual criticism of the New Testament.. (1955) p. 113
St. Augustinus gegen das 'Comma Johanneum'? - Norbert Fickermann
Biblische Zeitschrift. (old series) 22 (1934) 350-358.
And perhaps it was also a separate publication, although that could be a google quirk.
There are some other fascinating references to this article, but mostly it has not been noted.
The lack of biographic information is a bit unusual, any help would be appreciated, it appears the was born around 1900, perhaps a bit earlier.
Any response on-list or off-list is fine.
