Born: c.1500, Munich

Died: c.1554, Augsburg

Biography: A Franciscan who married and moved to Augsburg in 1526, working as a music teacher. From 1527 to 1530 he was an important figure in the Anabaptist movement in Augsburg. Baptised in the spring of 1527, he was the movement's local leader until he was arrested in a large-scale police raid in September of that year. Released from prison in 1530, he went into exile for a time, but was back in the city by 1537. The Fugger family, richest in Europe and members of the city council, arranged a printer's licence for him in 1539, and he spent the rest of his life as a highly respected editor (he called himself "Selector") of musical publications.
