Quick Reference


Bp. of Naumburg. His humanistic sympathies made him eager for peace with the Protestants, and to this end he took part in several conferences. He was ready to tolerate a married clergy and Communion in both kinds. He was elected Bp. of Naumberg-Zeitz in 1541 but could not take possession of his see until 1547. The ‘Interim of Augsburg’ (1548; q.v.) was largely his work.
