German physician and poet. As a lyricist he stands in the front rank of German poets. Fleming is one of the writers now called "the Silesian poets" or "the Silesian school". As well as writing notable verse and hymns, he spent several years accompanying the Duke of Holstein's embassies to Russia and Persia. He also lived for a year at Reval on the coast of Estonia, where he wrote many love-songs. He died on 2 April 1640, aged 30.
