Anton Thor Helle dies

to map

13. April 1743

After the Estonian Bible had been completed, Helle continued with this religious work, but it is likely he also carried on with linguistic work. It is surmised that a book published in 1740, called "Wiis head jutto Ühhe Öppetaja ja usklikko Tallopoja wahhel" (Five Good Stories Spoken Between a Teacher and a Religious Farmer) was Helle's work. This book introduced the Estonian Bible to the peasantry. However, some believe that it was Albert Anton Vierorth's work instead.
Helle became the rural dean of Eastern Harjumaa in 1742, but he died in the following year, being about 60 years old.
