Summary

Satirical poem aimed against Heinrich der Jüngere (the Younger), Duke of Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel, by Nicolaus von Amsdorff, as transcribed by hand, evidently from the printed edition, in 1541 (abgeschrijben am 25. Tag Augusti anno 1541; f. 1r). The poem defends the pro-Reformation stance of the town of Goslar, which stood under military threat from Heinrich, a loyal ally of Emperor Charles V and an opponent of the Reformation; it is formulated as a response to an anti-Reformation dialogue published by Conrad Braun of the Imperial Chamber Court in 1539. The manuscript ends with two four-line epigrams under the heading Hertzog Heinrich von Braunschweig (f. 7r), a characterization of him and a counter-characterization (Contrarium), in the first person. The published poem is listed in Karl Goedeke's Grundrisz zur Geschichte der deutschen Dichtung aus den Quellen, vol. 2, p. 298, no. 144; and is reprinted in Oskar Schade, Satiren und Pasquille aus der Reformationszeit, vol. 1, p. 48.
