German scholar, poet and reformer. He was an outspoken critic of the Roman Catholic Church and a bridge between the humanists and the Lutheran Reformation. He was a leader of the Imperial Knights of the Holy Roman Empire.
His restless, adventurous life, reflecting the turbulent Reformation period, was occupied with public and private quarrels, pursued with both pen and sword.
He was highly talented with poetic gifts. He was a master of the Latin language, and excelled in satirical and passionate invective. He published some 45 different works.
He died 29 August 1523, near Zurich.
