Born: May 27, 1584, Alach, Germany.
Died: February 12, 1640, Erfurt, Germany.
For a while, Altenburg taught and was a precentor in Erfurt. In 1608, he became pastor of Ilversgehofen and Marbach, near Erfurt; in 1611, of Trochtelborn; and in 1621 of Gross-Sommern (or Sömmerda), near Erfurt.
In 1631, during the war, he was forced to flee to Erfurt. He stayed there without a charge until 1637, when he was appointed diaconus of the Augustine Church, and, in 1638, pastor of St. Andrew’s Church.
