(94 words)

[German Version]

(Mar 15, 1877, Munich – Aug 18, 1946, Erlangen), Bavarian Protestant theologian. After earning his Dr.phil. in 1899, Ulmer served as a pastor in Adelshofen (1910–1918) and Würzburg (1918–1920), dean in Dinkelsbühl (1920–1924), and professor of practical theology at Erlangen (1924–1937). On account of an article (“So geht’s nicht”) critical of Robert Ley, the head of the Nazi party organization, he was forced to retire. He achieved prominence as president of the Martin-Luther-Bund (1928–1939), on which he left an enduring mark.
