Definitions of HEINRICH BEBEL
Sort: Oldest first
A notable German humanist (1472-1518). He was an alumnus of Cracow and Basel Universities, and from 1497 professor of poetry and rhetoric at Tubingen. His fame rests principally on his "Facetiae" (1506), a curious collection of bits of homely and rather coarse-grained humor and anecdote, directed mainly against the clergy; and on his "Triumph of Venus", a keen satire on the depravity of his time.
