Brother intoxication

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Brother Rausch is a Low German satire that tells how the devil, as "Brother Rausch", becomes a cook in a monastery, mocks the monks and promotes their fornication until he is finally banned. The writing appeared in 1488 in Low German and 1508 in High German. This legend was also known in Scandinavia and England. In 1882 Wilhelm Hertz created a narrative from the material. There may be a connection to the figure of the Hödeken .
