Julius Carl Reinhold Sturm
Short Name: Julius Carl Reinhold Sturm
Full Name: Sturm, Julius Carl Reinhold, 1816-1896
Birth Year: 1816
Death Year: 1896

Sturm, Julius Carl Reinhold, was born July 21, 1816, at Köstritz, in the principality of Reuss (younger line). After being a student of theology at Jena, from 1837 to 1841, he was for two years a private tutor at Heilbronn on the Neckar, and then, for a year, at Friesen, in Saxony. In 1845 he became tutor to Prince Heinrich xiv. of Reuss; and after the Prince's confirmation, in 1848, acted as tutor to him for three years more at the Gymnasium in Meiningen. He was then appointed pastor at Göschitz, near Schleiz, in the end of 1850; and pastor at Köstritz, in 1858, where he still (1889) lives as Kirchenrath and Court preacher (Koch, vii. 284; ms. from the author, &c). Sturm is one of the most important of modern German sacred poets. Among his works of this nature may be mentioned:—
(1) Gedichte, Leipzig, 1850; 3rd ed., 1862. (2) Fromme Lieder, Leipzig, 1852; 6th ed., 1867. (3) Zwei Rosen, oder das holte Lied der Liebe, Leipzig, 1854: a version of Canticles. (4) Neue fromme Lieder und Gedichte, Leipzig, 1858; 2nd ed., 1870. (5) Israel's Weg zur Herrlichkeit, Erlangen, 1858; 2nd ed., as Israelitische Lieder, Halle, 1867. (6) Von der Pilgerfahrt, Halle, 1868. (7) Gott grüsse dich. Religiöse Gedichte, Leipzig, 1876. (8) Aufwärtz, Leipzig, 1881. (9) Ich bau auf Gott. Neue religiöse Gedichte, Bremen, 1883. (10) Palme und Krone, Bremen, 1888.
From these works a large number of pieces have passed into recent collections of German sacred poetry, and a few into recent German official hymnbooks. A considerable number have been translation by Lady John Manners, the Rev. J. Kelly, and others, but none have passed into English hymnbooks. [Rev. James Mearns, M.A.]
