Dalmatin, Georg

Dalmatin, Georg a Slavonic theologian and Orientalist, lived in the latter half of the 16th century. In 1568 he translated the Bible of Luther into his native language. The printing of. this translation was intrusted to John Manlius, who established the first printing-house at Laybach, and was completed at, Wittenberg in 1584. After repairing to Dresden, in order to thank the. elector of Saxony for having permitted the printer to take charge of this operation, Dalmatin went to perform pastoral duties at St. Khazaim, in 1585. Being exiled in 1598 by the Catholics, who called him abusively Cavale (Kobila, "the preacher"), he found an asylum at the house of the baron of Ansperg, who lodged him in a vault placed under the stables of the chateau, and afterwards called the Trou.
