Bartholomäus Ringwaldt

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Bartholomäus Ringwaldt (28 November 1532 – c. 1599) was a German didactic poet and Lutheran pastor. He is most recognized as a hymnwriter.[1][2]


Bartholomäus Ringwaldt was born in Frankfort-on-the-Oder, Germany. From 1543, he studied theology. After graduating, he first started his career as a teacher. He was ordained into the Lutheran Ministry during 1557 and served as pastor of two parishes. In 1566, he became the pastor of Langenfeld, Brandenburg-Prussia. Starting during the 1570s, he wrote songs and poems which focused on his religious and theological beliefs. Ringwaldt was a prolific hymnist, and may have composed tunes as well.[3][4]

Bartholomäus Ringwaldt died c. 1599 in Langenfeld, today Długoszyn near Sulęcin, Poland.[5]
