the birthplace of his friend and
tutor, Aug. H. Francke, the lat-
ter a university town, whose great
seat of learning up to a few years
before was presided over by
the renown Dr. Heinrich Miiller
(Muhlen). Both of these cities had for some years been
centers of pietistic activity.

Whether Justus Falckner studied or spent any time at
the university at Rostock has not been determined. From
a document found in the library there, it is shown that he
spent some time in the Duchy of Schleswig, and was aided
and befriended by a son and namesake of the noted pie-
tistic theologian Dominie Heinrich Miiller (Muhlen) men-
tioned by Gotfried Arnold in his Kirchen and Ketzer
gescktchte, and who was also a church dignitary and had
succeeded his father in the office as superintendent. Thence
young Falckner went to the adjoining Duchy of Holstein,
where he evidently for a time taught school or acted as
a private tutor.
