Valentin Weigel (1533-88), a Protestant pastor in Zschoppau, Saxony, Germany. His important writings, which did not become generally known until after his death, reveal a remarkable similarity in spirit to Tauler and Sebastian Franck. They had a strong influence upon Jakob Böhme, Gottfried Arnold, and Johannes Arndt. His ideas are closely related to those of the Anabaptists and he is therefore often erroneously reckoned among them. (See Spiritualists.)
