There in God's Garden

Author: Pécseli Király Imre

Pécselyi Király Imre (c.1585–c.1641) began a career as a school teacher in Komarom (now in Slovakia) before studying theology in Heidelberg (1609–1612). In 1615 he became a pastor in a Reformed church in Komárom, later in Érsekújvár. He also served as dean of the tractus (like a classis or presbytery). He wrote several studies, including a popular introduction to rhetoric, a catechism dedicated to the Protestant soldiers in Érsekújvár, and a theological treaty. He also wrote several hymns that are still included in Hungarian hymnals, including this one, "Paradiczomnak te szép elö fája" (“You beautiful living tree of Paradise”). Go to person page >
