About C. F. W. Walther

Carl Ferdinand Wilhelm Walther (October 25, 1811–May 7, 1887) immigrated to the United States of America from Saxony (a German territory) in 1839. With others, he formed The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod in 1847 and became its first president, as well as a professor and president of Concordia Seminary (now in St. Louis). He is remembered as “the American Luther” due to his defense of distinctively Lutheran doctrine and practice in the midst of a culture that opposed these.

Walther’s Works is part of the Lutheran Church Fathers Subscription Program.
