Chapter Summary

Readers who come away from Georg Mayer's writing with a sense of respect or even admiration must feel frustrated when they see that next to nothing is known about his life. Ulrich Rehlinger, mayor of Augsburg, and his wife and son were known to be followers of Schwenckfeld. As in most of Mayer's tracts, Luther is quoted more often than any other author and with lines drawn from a great variety of his writings. Mayer usually looks for statements of a liberal, even radical, hue that he can contrast with the scholastic and doctrinaire rigidity shown by more recent Lutherans. The hope remains that eventually more will be learnt about Georg Mayer of Leeder.

Keywords: Augsburg; Georg Mayer; Leeder; Lutheran; Schwenckfeld; Ulrich Rehlinger
