AUBERLEN, ɑu´ber-len, KARL AUGUST: Theologian; b. at Fellbach, near Stuttgart, Nov. 19, 1824; d. at Basel May 2, 1864. He studied in the seminary of Blaubeuren 1837-41, and theology at Tübingen 1841-45; became repetent in theology at Tübingen 1849, and professor at Basel 1851. As a young man he was attracted by the views of Goethe and Hegel and enthusiastic for the criticism of Baur; but he later became an adherent of the old Württemberg circle of theologians—Bengel, Oetinger, Roos, etc. He published Die Theosophie Oetingers (Tübingen, 1847); Der Prophet Daniel und die Offenbarung Johannis (Basel, 1854; Eng. transl., by Adolph Saphir, The Prophecies of Daniel and the Revelation, Edinburgh, 1874; 2d German ed., 1857); Die götttiche Offenbarung (i, Basel, 1861; Eng. transl., with memoir, Edinburgh, 1867). A volume of sermons appeared in 1845; a volume of lectures on the Christian faith in 1861.
