HIS learned and conscientious man, who will be THUS

ever dear to the lovers of sacred literature, by his excellent edition of the Septuagint, and to the Church of England for his faithful attachment to her primitive principles, was the son of Martyn Sylvester Grabe, professor of divinity, and history in the University of Koningsberg, in Prussia, where his son, the subject of the present sketch, was born January 10, 1666. He was educated under his father, and took the degree of M.A. in that University. In studying divinity, he went to the fountain head, and made himself familiar with the wri. tings of the Fathers; by which means he acquired a profound veneration for the principles and institutions of the primitive Church. This led him to perceive, that an uninterrupted succession of the priesthood, and consequently of the episcopal order by which it should be conferred, is essential to the constitution of the Christian Church. It gave him great concern to see that the Protestant Communions around him, as well Lutheran as Calvinian, were destitute of this requisite, and the more he considered the subject, the more he was dissatisfied. His scruples, at length, grew to such a degree, that he thought himself obliged, in conscience, to Vol. VI. Churchm. Mag. June, 1804.
