Moibanus, Ambrosius, was born at Breslau, April 4, 1494. After studying at Krakau (Cracow), and graduating M.A. at Vienna, he became, in 1518, rector of the Cathedral School at Breslau, and in 1520 rector of the St. Mary Magdalene School. Incurring the displeasure of the clergy, he left Breslau in 1521, and, after studying Hebrew at Ingolstadt, under Johann Reuchlin, went to Wittenberg. After his return to Breslau he was, in April, 1525, appointed pastor of the St. Elisabeth Church, and in the same year became D.D. at Wittenberg. He died at Breslau, Jan. 16, 1554 (Allgemeine Deutsche Biographie, xxii. 81, &c). The only hymn known by him is:— Ach Vater unser der du bist. (Lord's Prayer).
