Sohwebel, Johann (2)
Sohwebel, Johann (2), a supporter of the Reformation in Strasburg, was born at Bischoffingen, near Breisach, in 1499, and was for a time a Cistercian monk at Thennenbach. He left the convent in 1524, and, because of his familiarity with ancient languages, secured the position of teacher at Strasburg, where he died, in 1566. See Rohrich, Gesch. d.
