Johann Ludwig von Wolzogen (1599–1661) was an Austrian nobleman and Socinian theologian.

Wolzogen was born in Nové Zámky (modern Slovakia), known then as Neuhäusel in German and Érsekújvár in Hungarian. He inherited the titles of Baron of Tarenfeldt and Freiherr of Neuhäusel.

Comenius became acquainted with Wolzogen in 1638.[1] And Wolzogen took issue with the followers of Descartes.[2] Wolzogen was a distinguished exegete, and, besides his Bible commentaries, wrote a Compendium religionis Christiana and a criticism of the doctrine of the Trinity .

He died in Silesia.
