Frosch, Johann

Frosch, Johann the reformer of Augsburg, originally belonged to the Carmelites. In 1516 he was made licentiate of theology at Wittenberg, under the presidency of Luther, and in 1517 prior of the Carmelite monastery at Augsburg. When Luther openly broke with the Church of Rome, Frosch, too, began to preach the pure gospel at Augsburg, and in 1522 he was appointed by the city council as evangelical preacher. In 1527 he held a disputation with the Anabaptists at Augsburg, and in 1531 was dismissed by the council because it leaned towards Zwinglianism. Frosch went to Nuremberg, and died there in 1533.
