Laskary, Andreas

Laskary, Andreas, a learned and pious Roman Catholic prelate, was bishop of Posen from 1414-1426. He was a member of the Council of Constance, and often preached to the assembled clergy. On his return home he sought cloister life, but was restrained by the pope, and subsequently by his active influence secured such marked prosperity for an episcopal village in Masowine that it was called after his name, Laskarzewo.
