English summary: This new biography follows the activities of Polish nobleman, humanist, Reformer and theologian Johannes a Lasco (Jan Laski,1499-1560) in East Friesland. The reformer's career spanned humanism and the Reformation in Poland, Italy, Switzerland and Germany. Jurgens begins his analysis with a Lasco's education, his diplomatic and ecclesiastical activities in Hungary and Poland, his humanist sympathies in Basel and Poland and his turn towards the Reformation. Attention focuses on contacts to Erasmus of Rotterdam, whose library a Lasco purchased, as well as his participation in the Hungarian succession conflict and his encounters with Melanchthon and Albert Hardenberg. A Lasco's efforts to define the East Frisian Reformed Church against Anabaptists and Catholics and to unify its organization and theology are examined. His negotiations between the developing confessions are analyzed theologically and politically from his energetic correspondence with leading contemporary theologians, organized for the first time here in an appendix. The book concludes with the Interim and a Lasco's 1549 dismissal as East Frisian Superintendent. German description: In dieser detaillierten biographischen Studie zeichnet Hennig P. Jurgens die reformatorische Tatigkeit des polnischen Adeligen, Humanisten und Theologen Johannes a Lasco (Jan Laski) (1499-1560) in Ostfriesland (1542-1549) nach. Er schildert den Werdegang des europaischen Reformators zwischen Polen, Italien, der Schweiz und Nordwestdeutschland, zwischen Humanismus und Reformation. Zuerst stellt der Autor die faszinierende, wechselhafte Biographie a Lascos, seine Ausbildung, seine politische und kirchliche Tatigkeit in Ungarn und Polen, seine Teilhabe am Humanismus in Basel und Polen sowie seine Hinwendung zur Reformation vor. Besonderes Augenmerk liegt dabei auf den Kontakten zu Erasmus von Rotterdam, dessen Bibliothek a Lasco erwarb, sowie auf der Beteiligung a Lascos am ungarischen Thronfolgekonflikt und auf der Begegnung mit Philipp Melanchthon und Albert Hardenberg.Anschliessend schildert Henning P. Jurgens a Lascos Tatigkeit fur die ostfriesische reformatorische Kirche und untersucht, wie a Lasco sich bemuhte, diese gegenuber Taufern und Altglaubigen abzugrenzen und theologisch und organisatorisch zu einen. A Lascos Bemuhungen einer theologischen Vermittlung zwischen den divergierenden Lagern der sich formierenden Konfessionen werden in ihrer theologischen und politischen Tragweite dargestellt und eingeordnet. Hier wird sein Briefwechsel zugrundegelegt, der im Anhang erstmals in einer Tabelle zusammengestellt wird und der a Lascos Korrespondenz mit den fuhrenden Theologen seiner Zeit, darunter Melanchthon, Bullinger und Bucer, nachweist. Den Abschluss bildet die Entlassung a Lascos als Superintendent in Ostfriesland 1549 im Zuge des Interims.
