The details
Biography

Benigna Marie of Reuss-Ebersdorf (15 December 1695 in Ebersdorf – 31 July 1751 in Pottiga) was a German hymn writer and a titular Countess of Reuss. She was a member of the Reuss-Ebersdorf line from the Reuss-Lobenstein.

Life

Benigna Marie was a daughter of Count Henry X of Reuss-Ebersdorf (1662-1711) and Countess Benigna Erdmuthe of Solms-Laubach. She grew up in Ebersdorf and was educated in a strictly pietistic fashin. After her parents' death, she moved to Pottiga.

Here she wrote a series of hymns in the spirit of Zinzendorf, who was married with her younger sister Erdmuthe Dorothea. However, she rejected Zinzendorf's Moravian Church and schism in the Evangelical church that this caused.

She was a close friend of Johann Jakob Moser, and died unmarried in Pottiga, at the 55 years.
