STEPHAN BERGLER, German classical scholar, was born about 1680 at_Kronstadt in Transylvania.
In the prince's library Bergler discovered the introduction and the first three chapters of Eusebius's Demonstratio Evangelica.
According to another account, Bergler, finding himself without means, drifted to Constantinople, where he came to an untoward end (c. 1740).
Bergler led a wild and irregular life, and offended his friends and made many enemies by his dissipated habits and cynical disposition.
In addition to writing numerous articles for the Leipzig Acta Eruditorum, Bergler edited the editio princeps of the Byzantine historiographer Genesius (1733), and the letters of Alciphron (1715), in which seventy-five hitherto unpublished letters were for the first time included.
