(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. The work is nationalistic in its treatment of the past and critical of Aventinus’ times; it has antiprincely and anti-Catholic tendencies.

In making her case, Cuneo sensibly rejects previous attempts to find a common underlying hermeneutic or contextual structure for the series, stressing instead the multivalence of the paintings as a deliberate choice, relating the themes to the manipulative usage of themes from ancient history as a political tool advocated by Machiavelli, Wimpfeling, and by Wilhelm's own historian, Aventinus -- who referred to his own writing as "art" (Kunst).
