Philipp von Zesen was born in Priorau near Dessau. From 1639 to
1641 he studied rhetorics and poetry at the University of
Wittenberg. During the war years from 1642 to 1648 von Zesen
lived in the Dutch Republic working as a translator.
He found some German opponents to foreign words, but sometimes
his suggestions were not accepted. Have fun with his neologisms.
