Johann August Starck also Stark (28 October 1741 – 3 March 3, 1816) was a prolific author and controversial Königsberg theologian, as well as a widely read political writer now best remembered for arguing that an Illuminati-led conspiracy brought about the French revolution.
Immanuel Kant and Johann Georg Hamann were among his acquaintances in Königsberg.His broadly deistic approach emphasized natural religion and smoothed over doctrinal differences among the various faiths.
