Johannes von Saaz

Johannes von Saaz

(Johannes von Tepl) (yōhän`əs fən zäts, tĕp`əl), c.1350–c.1414, Bohemian humanist and writer. Johannes is best known for his powerful work Der Ackermann aus Böhmen (c.1400, tr. Death and the Plowman), a dialogue between Death and a recently widowed farmer. Among the first prose works in Modern High German, it is characterized by medieval style and form but it embodies Renaissance spirit in its defense of mankind.
