Samuel Huber

1547-1624. Protestant scholar. Born at Burgdorf, near Bern, he was active in religious controversy, usually defending Lutheran doctrines against the Calvinism of the Swiss Reformed Church. He caused special offense by his assertion of Christ's universal atonement (“Christum Jesum esse mortuum pro peccatis totuis generis humani”), and was banished from Switzerland in 1588. He joined the Lutheran church, signed the Formula of Concord,* and became first a pastor near Tübingen, then professor in Wittenberg University. His assertion that God has from eternity elected all men to salvation gave offense to other Lutherans, and he was opposed by Polycarp Lyser and Aegidius Hunnius (1593), whom he in turn charged with Calvinism. According to Albrecht Ritschl, Huber was “a very poor theologian,” but noteworthy as representing the protest against the doctrine of twofold predestination. The title “Huberianism” was widely given to expositions of a universal atonement such as he advocated.
