Franz Eugen Schlachter


Swiss revivalist preacher, classical scholar and the translator of the German language Schlachter Bible.

He began his translation of the Bible, beginning with the book of Job in 1893. In 1905 the Miniaturbibel (Miniature Bible) was completed, named for its size (1 cm thick), small enough to carry in a pocket. The translation was faithful to the Greek and Hebrew transcripts.

He was married to Maria, with whom he had four children. On 12 January 1911 he died in Bern of a stomach illness.
