Wolfgang Meuslin (Hymn-Writer)

Born: 1497 - Diuze, Lorraine

Wolfgang Meuslin [Musculus] was first a monk, then became a Catholic priest, later became an Evangelical pastor in Dorlisheim (Alsace). In 1539 he was a pastor at the Cathedral in Straßburg, then active in the Reformation movement in Augsburg after 1530. In 1548 he was driven away from there by the events of the Interim period and then became a professor of theology in Bern where he died in 1563.
