M. CYRIACVS SPANGENBERGIVS, 1528~1604, The M. may be the standard abbreviation for Master but if not, then the Cyriacus middle name may be the familial name of his mother.  (Surely his nose is impressive enough to qualify for that in the tradition of our family!)  He was a great defender of Martin Luther and thereby an equally great critic of the Pope(s).

Two samplings from the english translation of the History of the German People ...:
Spangenberg, in 1562, wrote - "The Popes are murderers ; they condemn and put to death all those who blame the godless, sodomitish profligacy of the popish priests, monks and nuns.  ... Their work is gorging and swilling and dishonouring women and young girls."

That Luther's credit had sunk to such a low ebb everywhere in Germany was the constant complaint of the defenders of his doctrine. ' Almost all over the land,' wrote Cyriacus Spangenberg as early as 1594, ' it has come to this that it may well be said as in Exodus i. 8 : " There arose up a new king over Egypt, which knew not Joseph ; " for scarcely anybody cares to hear or know anything more concerning the saintly Luther.'
