Ludwig Ingwer Nommensen (1834-1918) is almost a mystical personality in the christian Batak countries of north Sumatra. Nommensen came in 1862 to the then ‘Dutch East Indies’ to mission the Batak People in the area around Lake Toba in Sumatra. After several of his predecessors have been victim to the cannibalic practices of the Batak People of the time, Nommensen survived several assassination trials. At the end of his life the christian parish counted 180,000 members. His mission is counted as one of the most successful christian missions in modern history. Nommensen also translated the bible from Greek into Batak language.
