Johannes Bugenhagen, Pomerania

Bugenhagen was born on the 24th of June 1485 in Wollin/ Pomerania. His father was a councillor there. Bugenhagen studied at the University of Greifswald. Afterwards he went to the town school in Treptow as a teacher and later was appointed to become the principal.

On behalf of Duke Bogislaw X, Bugenhagen wrote a chronicle of Pomerania. On an extensive journey through the country he collected historical material and traditions. Already in 1518 he handed over the chronicle, written in Latin by hand, to the duke with a dedication letter. The Pomerania is the first coherent representation of Pomeranian history.
