Gallus, Nicolas (properly Hahn)

a Lutheran theologian of Germany, was born at Kothen, June 21, 1516. He studied at Wittenberg, was in 1542 deacon at Ratisbon, which place, however, he had to leave on account of the Interim (q.v.). He went to Wittenberg to occupy the pulpit of Cruciger, who was prevented from discharging his ministerial functions by sickness. From Wittenberg Gallus went to Magdeburg, but returned again to Ratisbon in 1553, and died there in 1570. In connection with Flacius (q.v.), Gallus opposed the Interim and Osiander, and defended his Church against the intrusion of all and every error.
