Theodosius Harnack
Theodosius Harnack (January 3, 1817, Saint Petersburgmarker – September 23, 1889, Tartumarker) was a Baltic German theologian.

Harnack was a professor of Divinity at the University of Tartumarker in what is today Estoniamarker. He was a staunch Lutheran and a prolific writer on theological subjects; his chief field of work was practical theology, and his important book on that subject summing up his long experience and teaching appeared at Erlangenmarker (1877–1878, 2 vols.). The liturgy of the Lutheran church of Russiamarker has, since 1898, been based on his Liturgische Formulare (1872).

His twin sons were the German theologian Adolf von Harnack (1851–1930) and mathematician Carl Gustav Axel Harnack (1851–1888).
