Des Theologen und Universitätsprofessors
geb. 06. 08.1745 · gest. 30.08.1831
Lenke das Auge zurück auf den Anfang des Irdischen Lebens.
Sende die Blicke voraus, denkend der nahenden Gruft.
Hebe Sie glaubend empor zu dem Lande vollendeter Geister.
Würdig der Himmlischen Höhn Schau Auf Die Erde Herab.
Wirke Gutes, du Nährst der Menschheit göttliche Pflanze.
Bilde Schönes, du streust Keime des Göttlichen aus.
Residence and place of death of theologian and university professor, Franz Oberthuer. Born August 6, 1745, died August 30, 1831.
"Turn your gaze back to the beginning of earthly life. Then look ahead, thinking of the impending tomb. Look up with belief, straight to the realm of completed spirit. Worthy of heavenly hope, look down the earth. There - do good, and you will nourish humanity's divine plant; create beauty, and you will scatter the seeds of the divine."
