Herman Kalkar (Christian Andreas) 1802-1886
Kalkar, the son of Rabbi Simon Isak, was born in 1802 at Stockholm. He received his early education from his father and at the schools of Copenhagen, where in 1818 he became a student of law. In 1823 he became a believer, was baptised by a Lutheran pastor, and studied theology, passing his examination in 1826. In 1833 he received the degree of Ph.D. He dealt first with biblical theology, but eventually found his particular area of interest was in the history of mission, on which he wrote extensively.
He taught Latin, Hebrew and Religion at Odense from 1827 until 1841 and, after 1844, served as minister in Gladsaxe and Herloi. From 1855 he became involved in the Evangelical Alliance. From 1871 until 1880, he was editor of Theologisk Tidskrift. In 1868 he wrote a sort of apology for the Christian church, entitled: The Mission among the Jews.
As an 81 year old, in 1884, he convened a conference of the Evangelical Alliance in Copenhagen and was elected to serve as president.
