Peter of Dresden

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Peter von Dresden ( Petrus Dresdensis ; * around 1350; † 1421 or 1426 in Regensburg ) came to Dresden in 1409, when the Germans left the University of Prague after the Kuttenberg decree , as rector of the Kreuzschule . However, it turned out that he himself was a supporter of the Hussites , and so he was expelled again in 1412. He then moved back to Prague with his journeymen Nikolaus and Friedrich , where he founded a school for German-speaking Hussite preachers in the Haus zur Schwarzen Rose. In 1421 or 1426 he was burned in Regensburg.

The well-known Christmas carol “ In dulci jubilo ” can be found in a collection of songs by Peter von Dresden, which was often ascribed to him in older research.
