LOSKIEL, George Henry, Moravian bishop, born in Angermuende, Courland, Russia, 7 November, 1740; died in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, 23 February, 1814. He was educated at the Moravian college and theological semi-navy of Germany. In 1802 he was consecrated to the episcopacy, and appointed presiding bishop of the northern district of the American province of the Moravian church, and he filled the office, with general acceptance, until 1811, when his health failed. In the following year he was elected to the chief executive board of his church at Berthelsdorf, Saxony; but the condition of his health prevented him from leaving this country. Loskiel was an eloquent preacher and a good writer. Two of his works are especially important : "Etwas furs Herz," meditations for every day in the year, which has passed through more than eight editions and still enjoys high repute (Basle, 1806), and the "History of the Moravian Mission among the North American Indians," translated into English by Charles J. Latrobe (London, 1794).
