Christoph Rau

Christoph Rau was born in Germany in 1928 and grew up in a Lutheran vicarage. He studied theology in Berlin and Rostock, trained in music in Leipzig, and became a priest of The Christian Community in Stuttgart. For decades he researched the structure of the Gospels, publishing his results in monographs on Matthew, Mark, and John (1972), as well as the comprehensive work, Die Vier um den Einen (the four around the one, 2008), on the four Gospels and their authors. He coedited German translations of The New Testament by Emil Bock (1980) and Heinrich Ogilvie (1996) and edited the literary estate of Michael Bauer in five volumes (1985–1997). He also wrote his biography, Michael Bauer und seine Lebensbegegnung mit Friedrich Rittelmeyer (1995).
