LLOYD, WILLIAM: Bishop of Worcester; b. at Tilehurst (18 m. w. of Windsor), Berkshire, Aug. 18, 1627; d. at Hartleburg Castle (4 m. s. of Kid­derminster), Worcester, Aug. 30, 1717. He studied at Oriel and at Jesus College, Oxford (B.A., 1642; M.A., 1646; B.D. and D.D., 1667), becoming a fellow of the latter college. He became a royal chaplain (1666), prebendary of Salisbury Cathe­dral (1667), vicar of St. Mary's, Reading, and arch­deacon of Merioneth (1668), dean of Bangor and prebendary of St. Paul's (1672), vicar of St. Mar­tin's‑in‑the‑Fields (1677) and bishop of St. Asaph (1680). He was translated to the see of Lichfield and Coventry in 1692, and to the see of Worcester in 1700. He was one of the most indefatigable op­ponents of Romanism under James IL, and was one of the seven bishops who were imprisoned in the Tower June 8‑15, 1688, for protesting against the Second Declaration of Indulgence. With the other

bishops he was tried and acquitted June 29. He assisted at the crowning of William and Mary and shortly afterward became lord high almoner. He furnished material for Burnet's History of the Ref­ormation of the Church of England (3 parts, London, 1679‑1715), wrote many tracts, and also one val­uable work, An Historical Account of Church Govern.. meat as it was in Great Britain and Ireland when they first Received the Christian Religion (London, 1684; reprinted in T. P. Pantin's edition of Stil­lingfleet's Origines Britannicce, vol. ii., Oxford, 1842).

LOBO, lb'b8, JERONIMO: Portuguese Jesuit missionary; b. in Lisbon 1593; d. there Jan. 29, 1678. After teaching for a time in the Jesuit col­lege at Coimbra he went as a missionary to India in 1621, arriving at Goa in 1622. In 1825 he set­tled in Abyssinia as superintendent of missions in the kingdom of TigrS, but some years later he was driven from the country, along with the patriarch and other Jesuit missionaries (see ABYSSINIA AND THE ABYSSINIAN CHURCH, § 8). After trying in vain to enlist the pope and the Spanish and Portu­guese governments in a scheme to reclaim Abys­sinia to the Romish Church by force of arms, he returned to India in 1640 and became provincial of the Jesuits at Goa. In 1656 he returned to Lis­bon, where he spent the rest of his life. He wrote in Portuguese an account of his travels, which, it seems, has never been published. The manuscript is preserved in the monastery of St. Roque, Lisbon. Balthazar Tellez drew largely upon Lobo's work for his Historic general de Ethiopia a Alta (Coimbra, 1660), which has often been attributed to Lobo. AbbE; Legrand translated Lobo's work into French under the title Voyage historique de Abisainie (Paris, 1728), which was translated by Dr. Johnson‑as A Voyage to Abyssinia (London, 1735; new ed., 1$87).
LOBSTEIN, lob'stain, PAUL: German Protes­tant; b. at Epinal (264 m. e.s.e. of Paris), Depart­ment of the Vosges, France, July 28, 1850. He was educated at the universities of Strasburg, Tubingen, and Gdttingen, and in 1878 became privat‑docent at the first‑named institution. In the following year he was appointed associate pro­fessor of theology at the same university, where he has been full professor since 1884. In theology he is a disciple of Reuss, A. Sabatier, and Ritachl. He has been associate editor of the works of Cal­vin in the Corpus Rejormattrrum, xxiii.‑xaxii., xlv., and has written Die Ethik Calvin's in ihren Grundziigen eretworfen (Strasburg, 1877); Petrua Ramus ala Theolog (1878); La Notion de la pre­existence du Fils de Dieu (Paris, 1883); etudes christologiques (5 parts, 1885‑94; the second part, La Doctrine de la neissance mireculeuae du Christ, 1890, was translated into English by V.

LOBWASSER, 18b‑v8s'ser, AMBROSIUS: Author of the welt‑known " Lobwasaer Psalter "; b. at Schneeberg (20 m. s.s.w. of Chemnitz) Apr. 4, 1515; d. at Ktinigaberg Nov. 27,1585. He was educated at Leipaic, especially in jurisprudence (under his elder brother Paul, then professor of that subject); took his master's degree at twenty, and worked as a lecturer till 1550. During the next seven years he traveled as tutor to some young men of rank, and in 1557 became court councilor and chancellor at Meissen. At Bologna, in 1562, he attained the degree of doctor of laws. From 1563 to 1580, when he retired from active life, he was assessor and professor of law at KtSnigaberg. He was a thorough and versatile scholar, and more than once filled the office of rector of the university. Although a Lutheran by conviction, he was viev~ed askance by his coreligionista for the reason that he based his translation of the Psalter of Beza and Marot not on the original text, but on the Re­formed French Psalter. His object was to popu­larize in Germany the melodies of the French Psalter, of the beauty of which he had received a deep impression during a long sojourn in Berry; and thus he adhered to the texts which served as channels for these melodies, in order that the meter and versification might accord with the French model. His work was primarily designed for pri­vate edification. Accidental circumstances, above all a pestilential epidemic, afforded him the requi­site leisure for the undertaking; a " noble French­man," Gaurier, gave him encouragement, and thus the Psalter was completely rendered into German by 1562. Duke Albert of Prussia, on whose pa­tronage Lobwasser had doubtless reckoned, died in 1568, and the publication was deferred till 1573. The title reads: Der Psalter des k6nigliehen Pro­phden Davids, In deutsche reyme verstendiglich and deutlich gebracht, mit vorgehender anzeigung der rey­men weiae, such einea jeden Psalmes inhalt: Durch den ehruesten Hochgelarten Hewn Ambrosium Lob­wasser, der Rechten Dodorn and Fiirstlicher Durch­lauchtigkeit in Preussen Rathe. Und hieriiber beg einem jeden Psalmen seine zegehdrige vier stimmen: Ynd taut der Paalmen arideclitige sch&w Gebel (Leipsic, 1573).

The prayers appended to every psalm are trans­lations of the Oraisons of Augustin Marlorat, preacher at Rouen. The summary preceding each psalm and the appended prayer stamp the work as a manual of edification. Although but a mediocre performance in point of language and practical ob­jectiveness, the Psalter enjoyed a success not much inferior to that of the Huguenot Psalter itself. For nearly two hundred years, Lobwasaer had almost unlimited sway in the German Reformed Church; and to this day, he is not quite out of date. He owed this success distinctly to the verbally exact adaptation of his version to the French melodies.

THE NEW SCHAFF‑HERZOG




These melodies formed the common musical lan­guage of the Reformed of all tongues.

The work was recast musically in 1607 by Land­grave Maurice of Hesse, who sought to bring it into harmony with the declamatory style of sing­ing at that time coming into fashion, and again by Samuel Marechall (Basel, 1606); by Criiger (Ber­lin, 1858); by Sultzberger (Bern, 1675) and others. The teat was also rendered into other languages: Latin, by Andrews Spetke, 1596; Danish, 1682; Italian, by Plants, 1740, as well as earlier; by the daughter of Landgrave Maurice of Hesse, 1608; by Casimir, 1753; Nicolai, .1762, etc. The attempts of eighteenth‑century taste to improve and expand the Lobwasser Psalter led gradually to its disuse. The appendix, which had at first comprised only the Decalogue Hymn (" Erheb' dein Herz, thu' suf dein Ohren ") and the Song of Simeon, and had then been enlarged‑ by the addition of German hymns, many of them Lutheran, grew continually stouter and heavier, till at last the " appendix " swallowed up the Psalter, and new hymnals arose in which only selected psalms were retained.

As the melodies lost their distinctive rhythm, their charm likewise vanished which the Lobwasaer text, notwithstanding its stiff and far from poetic language, had possessed. The German hymns which bad flourished, indeed, in the sixteenth cen­tury, although through the importance attached to Scriptural language and the charm of the French psalm melodies it had yielded to the latter, now gained the supremacy.

Besides his Psalter, Lobwasser also published a

collection of Hymni patrttm and anderer gottseliger



Mdnner, welche durchs game Jahr in den Kirchen

LOCI THEOLOGICI: A term applied by Me­lanchthon to Evangelical systems of dogmatics and retained by many as late as the seventeenth cen­tury. The word was borrowed, as he himself says, from the usage of the classic rhetoricians, in whose works Eoluoi or loci, denote the places or sources from which proofs are deduced. Various system­atized indexes of these loci were made from the days of Aristotle, and mere formal categories, such as " person," " nature," or " fortune," were also reckoned under this head. It was the particular task of the rhetorician, however, to trace the con­crete case, or " hypothesis," to the general, or


" thesis." Thus were evolved loci communes, or arguments which could be applied to many spe­cific cases. The humanistic rhetoricians frequently confused loci communes with simple loci, or gen­eral basal concepts. This was especially .true of Melanchthon, as is clear from his De rhetorical libri tree (Cologne, 1519), in which he sought to train students for disputation. He accordingly advised them to prepare lists of all possible loci communes, and to enter under the proper rubrics (capita) any examples gathered in the course of their reading. Among theological loci communes he lists " faith,"


destruction of the body," " Church," " word of God," " patience," " sin," " law," " grace," " love," and " ceremony." Elsewhere he defines loci com­munes as " certain general rules of living, of which men are persuaded by nature, and which I might not unjustly call the laws of nature." These two definitions, however, are not clearly distinguished and the discussion of the loci communes is conse­quently somewhat vague. This criticism applies also to the loci theologici of his famous Loci com­munes rerum theologicarum (1521), which are pri­marily basal concepts appearing in the science of theology, to which all in it must be referred. .He accordingly begins with his favorite list " God,"

« ., <.


one, triple,„ and creation,„ and closes with " condemnation " and " beatitude." Although this list was derived from Peter Lombard, Melanch­thon's treatment is not only more clear than that of his predecessor, but he draws his examples from the Bible instead of from the Church Fathers, and under Pauline influence deduces, in addition to loci communes, certain loci communiraimi, such as " sin," " grace," and " law." In view of the long and powerful influence of this book, the result of his failure to give a methodical proof of his series of loci was that Lutheran dogmatics was slow in reaching inherent unity. The term loci theologici gradually came to denote the content, and thus the chief passages of the Bible as included in the indi­vidual loci, although this meaning was forced into the background when Melanchthon laid more stress on the development of doctrine.


For Lutheran theology Melanchthon's book had

the same importance which the work of Peter

Lombard possessed for scholasticism. His loci

were the subject of commentary as late as Leon­

hard Hatter, and the term loci communes came to

connote any work dealing with the sum of Christian

doctrine. Among the Reformed the phrase loci

communes was accepted by Wolfgang Musculus

(Basel, 1560), Peter Martyr (London, 1576}, Jo­

hannes Maccovius (Franeker, 1639), and Daniel

Charmer (Geneva, 1653). After the middle of the

seventeenth century, however, with the rise of a

more systematic treatment of dogmatics the term

fell into disuse. (JOHANNES IS,UNZE.)




LOCK, WALTER: Church of England; b. at Dorchester (8 m. n. of Weymouth), Dorsetshire, July 14, 1848. He was educated at Marlborough College and Corpus Christi, Oxford (B.A. 1889), and was fellow of Magdalen College, Oxford, in 1869‑72, where he has been honorary fellow since 1897. He was assistant to the professor of humanity


RELIGIOUS ENCYCLOPEDIA




at St. Andrews in 1889‑70, and from the latter yeas to 1897 was tutor of Keble College, Oxford, as well as aubwarden in 1880‑97 and warden since 1897. Since 1895 he has been Dean Ireland's pro­fessor of the exegesis of Holy Scripture in the University of Oxford, and was also examining chap­lain to the bishop of Lichfield in 1881‑91 and to the archbishop of York since 1891, examiner in the Honour School of Theology in 1885‑87, and select preacher to the university in 1889‑90. He has edited Keble's Christian Year (London, 1895) and Lyres Innountium (1899), and has written the essay on The Church in Lux M'undi, (London, 1890); and on The Bible and The Old Testament in Oxford House Papers (1888‑97); John Keble, to Biography (1892); St. Paul, the Master Builder (1899); and The Bible and Christian Life (1905).
LOCKE, JOHN: English philosopher; b. at Wrington (10 m. s.w. of Bristol) Aug. 29, 1632; d. at Oates, Essex, Oct. 28, 1704. He studied at the College of Westminster (1646‑52), and at Christ Church, Oxford (B.A., 1655‑56; M.A., 1658), there making the acquaintance of a circle of eminent men which included Edward Pococke and Robert Boyle (qq.v.), and continuing his residence there for. some years. The Aristotelian‑scholastic phi­losophy then dominant at Oxford left him unsatis­fied; meanwhile, he was teaching privately, be­came Greek lecturer in 1860, lecturer on rhetoric in 1682, and censor in moral philosophy in 1663. He had . also pursued the study of medicine, and had become interested in physical science. In 1665 Locke went as secretary of the English mission to the elector of Brandenburg, but the next year set­tled as a physician at Oxford, through his profes­sion becoming a friend of the first earl of Shaftes­bury, to whom he was in large part indebted for political preferments which continued to come to him through life. Thus, in 1672 Locke was ap­pointed to a secretaryship which was, for the times, moderately well compensated. His health was not good, however, and he resided in France 1675‑79, not in idleness, however, but making investiga^ tiona along scientific, political, and social lines. After that he was in England until 1684, principally at Oxford, and then h0 went to Holland, remain­ing abroad till 1888‑89, when he returned and be­came commissioner of appeals, an office which he retained till death.

The moat important event in his life was the pub­lication of the work which brought him lasting fame as a philosopher, his Essay concerning Human Un­derstanding (London, 1690; five editions by 1706). The purpose was to investigate the origin, certainty, and extent of human knowledge. In this work Locke sought to prove that innate ideas do not exist, and that all knowledge comes through expe­rience by sensation and reflection. He was thus the originator of the empirical philosophy of the eighteenth century which spread over England, France, and Germany and greatly influenced both the political and social theories of his times. His letters on Toleration (1889‑90), Tim Treatises of Government (1690), a work on the national currency (1692), and Some Thoughts concerning Education



Lobwsaser


Locke


(1893) are further weighty ‑ productions of this period. Locke was a member of the council of trade (1696‑1700), but because of failing health was obliged to decline other preferments.

Locke's influence continued dominant until the spread of Kantian ideas, and he is called " the founder of the analytic philosophy of mind " (J. S. Mill, Logic, book L, chap. vi.). His principles were either so carried out or so misapplied in theology that. he became the object of sharp attack; to which he as sharply replied. This ass especially the case with Bishop Edward Stillingfleet (q.v.), whose Dis­course in Vindication of the Doctrine of the Trinity (London, 1698) brought on a controversy with Locke which continued till 1699. Locke has some­times been regarded as the father of late English skepticism (see DEISM, §§ 4‑5; ENLIGHTENMENT, THE, § 7). While in early life he had deliberately turned away from theology as a vocation, his in­terest never died out, and this came to its fruitage in his Reasonableness of Christianity (1695), and in his Paraphrase of the epistles to the Galatians, I and II Corinthians, Romans, and Ephesians (pos­thumous, 1705‑07). Of his Works many editions have appeared (3 vole., London, 1714; best ed. by E. Law, 4 vats., ib. 1777); and his Posthumous Works (ib. 1708).

Locust


Loshe THE NEW SCHAFF‑HERZOG


LOCUST: A common and familiar insect of the East. Locusts are counted among the small winged animals which " go upon all four" and were all regarded as unclean, with the exception of those which had two hind legs projecting above their feet " to leap withal upon the earth " (Lev. xi. 21‑22). These legs for leaping are a character­istic of the locust, while other marks are a head set at right angles with the body, armed with strong mandibles and having two antennae, large eyes, and a body formed of nine annulets. The four wings are of nearly equal length, but the rear ones are considerably broader than those in front. The female with her ovipositor throats the eggs, after they are fertilized, into the loose earth. In the spring, when the sun warms the ground, the larvae creep out, greenish white or black, small as flies, in shape like the full‑grown locusts, only without external sexual organs. They cast their akin four times; after the third casting the sexual parts ap­pear and after the fourth the insects are able to fly. In Syria locusts begin to breed by the middle of April.

The two species which are moat common in Syria (Aeridium Peregrinum and (Edipoda migra­toria) are particularly dreaded on account of their voracity and their great numbers. When the desert winds drive the immense swarms through the air (Ex. x. 13; Prov. sag. 27) they darken the sun like heavy clouds and the rattling of their wings sounds like the noise of chariots (Joel ii. 2, 5; Rev. ix. 9). Wherever they settle down, the verdure immediately disappears, even the Garden of Eden becomes a desert (Joel ii. 3). Those which are not yet winged crawl on the ground and no ob­stacle can atop them or divert them from the path they have chosen (Ex. x. 6; Joel ii. 7, 9). Broad ditches and large fires avail little to destroy the swarms, and even the red‑hawk and the rosy grackle (turdus roams), which fly along with them and devour many, scarcely lessen the swarms. Rain is their most dangerous enemy, as it destroys their eggs, and a severe storm does away with them altogether by sweeping them into the sea (Ex. a. 19; Joel ii. 20).

Locusts were looked upon as clean'according to Lev. xi. 22, and they were eaten by the poor as they are to‑day by the Bedouins (cf. Matt. iii. 4; Mark i. 5). By the Assyrians they were regarded as a delicacy. They are often mentioned in the Old Testament as a type of an enormous multi­tude (Judges vi. 5; Jer. xlvi. 23; Nah. iii. 15; Eccles. xliii. 17); of littleness, unimportance, and transitoriness (Nom, xiii. 33; Ps. cia. 23; Isa. xl. 22; Nah. iii. 17); of greed (Deut. xxviii. 38; Isa. xxxiii. 4), and of destruction (Amos vii. 1). Their advancing in bands is described in Prov. xxx. 27; in their leaping and in their appearance they are. compared to horses (Joel ii. 4; Rev. ix. 7). A plague of grasshoppers was one of the moat dread­ful judgments of God (Deut. xxviii. 38; I Kings viii. 37; Amos iv. 9). A highly poetical description of a swarm of locusts and the destruction and waste they left behind them is given by Joel (chaps. i.‑ii).

The Old Testament has many names to desig­nate locusts. The one most generally used, 'arbeh,




is a generic name (cf. Ex. x. 4 sqq.) as well as the

name of a particular species, probably the flying,

migratory locust (gryllus migratorius), which is

said to bear this name in Bagdad at the present

day. In Lev. xi. 22, sal'am, hargal, and haghabh

are named as different species; haghabh, however,

seems to be also a common designation. The

names in Joel (i. 4, ii. 25) are popular expressions

(cf. basil, " the devourer," Deut. xxviii. 38; Pa.

lxaviii. 46) which serve everywhere as general

designations (Jar. li. 27; Amos iv. 9; Nah. iii. 16).

To these may be added gebh and gobh (Isa. xxxiii. 4;

Amos vii. 1; Nah. iii. 17)‑an exceptional wealth of

synonyms easily understood from the great part the

locust played everywhere in the land. Some of these

synonyms may have had their origin in the various

dialects of the country. I. BENZINCIER.
