Born: 12 March 1515 Amberg

Died: 4 February 1553 Nuremberg

Biography Though there are gaps in the record of Othmayr's life, he studied at Heidelberg 1533-36, taught at the Lateinschule of Heilsbronn monastery 1543-47, and submitted a birth certificate to apply for a position at St Gumbertus in Ansbach in 1545. An expected promotion to provost of St Gumbertus in 1548 turned instead into a very lengthy lawsuit.
