He was consecrated Bishop of the Bohemian Brethren in 1532, became president of their "select council" in 1537, and died at Jung-Bunzlau, Bohemia, Jan. 13, 1572. Two of his hymns, written in Bohemian, have passed into English through the German as follows:— i. Aj jak jsou milí tvoji příbytkove. [The Christian Church.] Founded on Ps. lxxxiv. In the Bohemian Brethren's Hymn Book, 1559, f. 166, in 18 stanzas. Translated into German by J.

Gambold as No. 269 in pt. i. of the Moravian Hymn Book, 1754… Go to person page >
