from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Karl Ehregott Andreas Mangelsdorf (born May 16, 1748 in Dresden , † August 28, 1802 in Königsberg (Prussia) ) was a German educator, rhetorician and historian.


The son of a respected master tailor had attended the electoral state school in Pforta since March 26, 1763 . In 1768 he began studies at the University of Leipzig and in 1770 moved to the University of Halle , where he obtained the academic degree of a master's degree in philosophy under Christian Adolph Klotz in 1770. In Halle he began to give private lectures on literature and history. In 1772 he got in touch with Johann Bernhard Basedow , whose elementary works he sought to translate into Latin, and became a teacher at the Dessau Philanthropinum .

Since he had fallen out with Basedow, he returned to Halle in 1777 as a private lecturer. In 1782 he was transferred to the University of Königsberg as Professor of Rhetoric and History by the Minister Karl Abraham von Zedlitz . In this capacity he also took part in the organizational tasks of the Königsberg University and became rector of the Alma Mater in the summer semesters of 1794 and 1800 .

After working for twenty years in Königsberg, he died, leaving a widow with twelve children.
