Manuscript from Lichtenberger's own hand

Johannes Lichtenberger[1] (died 1503)[2] was a noted German astrologer.

He was much published, and various pseudonyms are attributed to him.[3] His 1488 Prognosticatio in latino, published at Heidelberg, was well known and appeared in numerous subsequent editions and translations.

He seems to have been, briefly in the early 1470s, court astrologer to the Emperor Frederick III.
