Johann Christoph Döderlein

Johann Christoph Döderlein or Doederlein (January 20, 1745 – December 2, 1792) was a German Protestant theologian.

As professor of theology at Jena from 1782, he was celebrated for his varied learning, for his eloquence as a preacher, and for the important influence he exerted in guiding the transition movement from strict orthodoxy to a freer theology. His most important work Institutio theologi christiani nostris temporibus accommodata was published in 1780.

Johann was the father of the philologist Johann Christoph Wilhelm Ludwig Döderlein, known as Ludwig.
