There is an article on Heuglin in the German Wikipedia here (translate it to English in Chrome browser). Perhaps there are more details about Heuglin's life there, but the above account by Pastor Fick does not gloss over spiritual matters. Heuglin is known for his writing for the peasants in their dispute with the authorities that led up to the Peasants War, and Fick admits that Heuglin may have sinned in this matter:
Whether and how far Heuglin had sinned, this is known only to God, the Knower of hearts.Then Fick adds the following spiritual insight:
But we should not get angry when we see the saints of God sin, but rather take comfort that the merciful God who forgave them, will not deny his grace to us.Now do you see why I say to trust Hermann Fick in his presentation of true Church History? — In the next Part 5a is the story of Leonhard Kaiser, Lutheran martyr.
