Georg Rörer (Latin: Georgius Rorarius) (October 1, 1492, Deggendorf–April 24, 1557, Jena) was a Lutheran reformer and pastor from Bavaria. He was one of the first clergymen ordained by Martin Luther himself in 1525. His office was deacon. He assisted in Luther's work of translating the Bible (1522–1545) and served as Luther's secretary beginning in 1537. In this capacity Rörer became one of the editors of Luther's Tischreden or "table talk" as well as a collected edition of Luther's works. He moved to Copenhagen in 1551 and to Halle in 1553.
