Philipp Melanchthon, Confessor
Today, 16 February, the birthday in 1497 of Philipp Schwarzerd, is also observed in the Lutheran Church as the Commemoration of Philipp Melanchthon, Confessor. We at renascentes Musae are quick to add that his epithets include the following: humanist, educational reformer, Graecist extraordinaire, and praeceptor Germaniae. Read the devotion for the Commemoration of Melanchthon from Memorial Moments.
