Burchardt, Francis

Burchardt, Francis a Lutheran theologian of Lowenberg, in Silesia, was pastor at Riesenburg, which place he had to leave on account of the Osiandrian controversies in 1554. In 1555 he went to Dantzic, where he became pastor of St. Mary's, and in 1560 he went to Thoren as pastor and professor of Hebrew at the gymnasium there. Differences between his colleagues obliged him to return to Dantzic, where he died in 1590. He wrote, De Sacramento Corporis et Sanguinis:-De Libertate Variarum Religionum, etc. He was very bitter against non-Lutherans. See Jocher, Allgemeines Gelehrten-Lexikon, s.v. (B. P.)
