From 1808 to 1842 he worked as a professor at the upper grammar school in Stuttgart . In 1842 he became prelate and general superintendent in Ulm . He retired on April 22, 1851.


The general superintendents of the Protestant regional church were, by virtue of their office, privileged members of the second chamber of the Württemberg state parliament .
