Hemming (Hemingius)

an eminent theologian of Denmark, was born in the isle of Lalald in 1513. He studied four years at Wittenberg under Melancthon, and imbibed his mild spirit. Returning to Denmark, he became preacher, and afterwards professor of Hebrew and theology at Copenhagen. In 1557 he became professor of theology and vice-chancellor. He was a voluminous writer in exegetical, dogmatical, and practical theology, and his Latin style is highly praised. Opposing the Lutheran doctrine of ubiquity, he was greatly reproached by the Lutherans as a Crypto-Calvinist. In his Syntagmina Instit. Christ. (1574) he expressed himself on the Eucharist in a conciliatory way; but this so-called recantation has been interpreted in accordance with the Calvinistic doctrine, as well as with the Lutheran. In 1579 he was made canon of Roeskilde, where he died in peace in 1600. His Opuscula Theologica, including his shorter treatises, were edited by Goulart (Geneva, 1586, fol.).
