Johannes (or Jan) Busch (1399 – c. 1480) was a major reformer and provost of a community of Canons Regular. He was associated with the Brethren of the Common Life.[1]

He was born in Zwolle. He spent most of the last 40 years of his life visiting and inspecting monasteries and convents, including Escherde (1441),[2] Brunswick,[3] and Wienhausen Abbey, then a Cistercian nunnery, where he removed the abbess in 1469.[4] He also wrote some substantial surviving works, including a chronicle of Windesheim.[5] He died at Hildesheim.
