Polykarp Leyser II
He was the father of nine recorded children, most of whom became theologians. His son, Johann Leyser, was also a theologian, but found himself cut off from his family for his controversial defense of polygamy. One of Polykarp's sons, however, Michael Leyser became a physician and anatomist, making important contributions to documenting the medical advances of the time, notably in respect of the Lymphatic system.
