The famous poet Martin Opitz, a friend, lodged at pastor Nigrinus' place, while visiting Danzig. Both Opitz and Nigrinus sent recommendation letters along with a Robert Fludd. Fludd was connected to the Rosicrucian movement and the Danzig edition of the Rosicrucian Manifestos was printed by the Danzig printer Andreas Hünefeld (Huenefeldt or Hunsfeldus) (1609-1652).
Comenius of Bohemia and Nigrinus had worked in nearby Elbing (Elbląg) on a Bohemian Pansophy. After the poet Opitz died, pastor Nigrinus with two of his associates edited the Opitz poems published by Huenefeld.
