Description
Antique c.1550 Engraving

Portrait of German Himanist and Reformer Andreas Althamer, anonymous, undated c. 1550s; engraved inscription: "ANDR. ALTHAMERUS, Primarius Pastor Onoldinus."

Reference:
We were able to locate only one additional copy of this engraving. It is preserved in the library archives of Lutherstadt Wittenberg, Germany. The experts at the Lutherstadt Library estimate the date of creation circa 1550.

Andreas Althamer [also Andreas Altheimer or Andrea Althamero] active (c. 1500 - c. 1539) was a German humanist and reformer. He was born in Brenz. He studied at the universities of Leipzig and Tuebingen. After completing his studies, he became a schoolteacher in Halle (Saale), Schwaebisch Hall and Reutlingen. In 1524, he was a priest in Schwaebisch Gmuend, where he tried to introduce the Reformation. He met with resistance from the Gmuender Council.In 1525, in order to escape persecution due to his Lutheran leanings, he fled to the University of Wittenberg. He took a degree in theology and became a student of Martin Luther.

As a deacon in the Sebalduskirche in Nuremberg, he took part in the Bern disputation of 1528. In May, on the recommendation of Lazarus Spengler, he was appointed pastor to the city of Ansbach by George the Pious.

Provenance:
This plate comes from a collection of engravings bound by the German art collector "A.L." The finalized collection of hand-numbered engravings is dated 1762 which provides additional warranty that the engravings are authentic and created prior to 1762; auctioned in London, UK.

Certification of Authenticity will be included upon buyers request.
