Bound in full vellum, brown lettering on panel on spine. Martin Geier was born on July 27, 1615 in Leipzig. He enrolled at the University of Leipzig in 1626 and received his Baccalaurat of philosophy in 1629. He studied at the University of Strasbourg in 1631 and at the University of Jena in 1632. He returned to Leipzig, where he was awarded the academic degree of Magister in May of 1633. He then moved to the University of Wittenberg in June of 1633 and continued there his theological studies. In addition, Geier attended the lectures of Wilhelm Nigrinus, Paul Röber, Wilhelm Leyser I, Johann Hülsemann and Martin Trost. In 1636 he became a lay lecturer in Wittenberg, taught the Hebrew language and, in 1637, returned to Leipzig. On 19 August 1639 he became professor of the Hebrew language at the University of Leipzig. However, Geier wanted to pursue a theological career, and he became a subdeacon in Leipzig in 1643, a deacon in 1645, archdeacon in 1657 and in 1659 became pastor at the Leipzig Thomaskirche. After he had received his doctorate in law in 1645 and doctorate in theology in 1658, Geier became assessor of the theological faculty, as well as a full professor. He was the rector of the Leipzig Alma Mater in the winter semester of 1659, became dean of the faculty of theology in the winter semester of 1662/63 and, at the same time, the superintendent of Leipzig in 1661, as well as a consistorial councilor. On July 3, 1646 he was godfather of Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz in the Leipzig Nikolaikirche. During his time in Leipzig, he established, among other things, the Collegium Gellianum. After Jakob Weller had died, in 1665 Elector Johann Georg II of Saxony summoned him to Oberhof as a high court preacher and church councilor. Geier was regarded as a theological zealot, who also emerged as the author of spiritual hymns, Old Testament Exegetes and accomplished editor..
