Matěj Korambus († 1536) – nový pokus o shrnutí života a díla utrakvistického humanisty
Matthias Korambus († 1536) – The Life and Work of an Utraquist Humanist Reconsidered
Languages of publication
The last and actually the only study so-far devoted to the life and work of an Utraquist priest Matthias Korambus († 1536) has been a short entry in the third volume of Rukověť humanistického básnictví v Čechách a na Moravě / Enchiridion renatae poesis Latinae in Bohemia et Moravia cultae (Prague 1969). This entry is now supplemented and corrected in a significant way. Above all, it has been discovered that Korambus studied at the University of Basel, where he accomplished a doctoral grade in 1507. Hitherto unknown was also his first work Septem psalmi poenitentiales, printed in Basel in 1508 and containing a dedication to the professor Matthias Holderlin-Sambucellus. Accordingly, the hypothesis that Korambus studied Greek in Italy is now to be rejected. The last contribution of the present text consists in the emphasis on Korambus’ involvement in religious controversies in Bohemia during the 20s of the 16th century.
