Joachim Vadians Konzilsgedicht "Freu dich, Hierusalem": Eine Entgegnung auf die päpstliche Einladung zum Konzil von Trient

Rudolf Gamper


The mayor of St Gallen, Joachim Vadian (1484–1551), composed numerous poems in the 1540s on diverse subjects. In a recently discovered poem, he confronts the invitation of the pope to the council of Trient with the views of the Reformed church. This paper edits and translates the poem, and places it in the context of Vadian’s known works on the council.
