Acta Comeniana 33:47-56 (2019)

Originating in Horní Slavkov in West Bohemia, Christoph Crinesius belonged to a close-knit group of experts on Oriental languages. The small collection of his surviving letters to Sebastian Tengnagel, a librarian at the Viennese court library, begins during Crinesius’s studies at the university in Wittenberg where he later worked as a lecturer. This fragmentary correspondence not only reveals new facts about Crinesius’s life but also tracks his search for employment that would enable him to continue his studies of Oriental languages. Among other things, the letters bear witness to the rarely high-lighted trend of Lutheran intellectuals from West Bohemia seeking financial sup-port and employment in Austria. © 2019, Czech Academy of Sciences.
