The author, born in modern day Tunisia in 462. He became a monk writing works to help instruct the Chrisitans of Africa. As bishop of Ruspe in Tunisia he was later banished to Sardinia in 520 after complaints from the local Arian clergy. The editor, a German humanist and a leading Roman Catholic was an opponent of Martin Luther. Cochlaeus’ early sympathy with Luther changed ca. 1520 into unremitting criticism. As adviser to papal nuncios and other ecclesiastical and secular dignitaries, he was prominent at several assemblies that strove to mend the religious split. Cochlaeus ranked among the most zealous theologians of his time, completely dedicated to his cause. His best known work was "Acts and Writings of Luther" (1549).
