(Latinized name of Johannes Turmair). Born July 4, 1477; died Jan. 9, 1534. German historian and humanist.

Aventinus’ major work, Bavarian Chronicle (written in Latin and later revised and translated into German by the author), puts the history of Bavaria through 1519 in the perspective of German and world history.
