Reformation polemical writer. A Bavarian Franciscan, he encountered the writings of M. Luther in 1520 and in 1521 he published fifteen pamphlets; the radical social ideas in some of these contributed to the discontent which was to be manifested in the Peasants' War. After 1522, he became more moderate.
