Biography

Josua Maaler (also Maler, Mahler, Latinized Pictorius; 1529–1599) was a Swiss pastor and lexicographer. He was the author of the first dictionary which focussed exclusively on the German language, published in Zürich as Die Teütsch Spraach in 1561.

Maaler followed the Dictionarium Latinogermanicum by Petrus Dasypodius (1536) in giving the German lemmas alphabetically, as opposed to the earlier Dictionarium Latino-Germanicum by Johannes Fries, which gave German glosses on Latin lemmas.
