I have found that we have two articles - Melchior Hoffman and Melchior Hofmann. I am moving the 1911 material here, and will try to work it in, and make the other article a redirect. I have chosen the permanent article to be under "Hoffman". This seems to be the current preferred spelling; also no articles are linked to "Hofmann". - Rlvaughn 01:52, 25 Feb 2005 (UTC)
This article needs work on the english style, also to check the spelling of the cities involved and making sure they link correctly.
There is also a Melchior Hoffmann, a pupil of JS Bach's (poss. c.1679-1715) one of whose cantatas was mistaken for his teacher's, I believe (listening to it now. BWV 189.) Probably some wrong links to this article because of the confusion (unless there's a disambiguation page I missed.) Schissel | Sound the Note! 12:00, 13 June 2009 (UTC)
- I've added it to the article. The German language labels are not ideal, but most people should get the idea. ✤ JonHarder talk 23:49, 29 November 2009 (UTC)
1911 the claims that Melchior Hoffman had a Valentinian Christology might have been in order, but today we know so much of Valentinus and the gnostic Valentinianism — the Nag Hammadi library — that the allegation just becomes pretty much absurd and preposterous, unless we can find some academic guy still claiming this weird allegation...
