  • Notes 
    • Was the pastor of St Leonhard Church in Friesau, Germany from 1638 - 1646 according to http://www.friesau.de/wehrkirche-st-leonhard/pfarrerliste-copyrightinf os.html. He was the 3rd pastor of that church.

      Michael shows up in both Allgemeine Deutsch Biographie (Universal German Biography) and Deutsches Sagenbuch (German Book of Legends), and also in the catalog of funeral sermons (along with Stephan Thomä and Herman Crell). He wrote and preached four funeral sermons. He also wrote and published several pamphlets, including his Congratulations to Cordula on her wedding date (she must have been Daddy's little girl) and an opinion that compared the Vatican to Gog, Magog and the other devils. He's also in the biography of the Sabbatai Zevi, the self-proclaimed Jewish Messiah, as one of the Protestant leaders of the opposition.

      He was also the pastor of Ebersdorf.

      ====================================================================== ==
      Buchenröder: Michael B., born 10 October 1610 in Steinfeld near Hildburghausen and educated in Rodach and Coburg, studied at [the University of] Jena theology and philosophy, acted as private tutor in Breitenbach in Thuringia and Möschlitz in the Vogtland and then was pastor of Friesau and Ebersdorf and finally in 1646 Superintendent of Heldburg, where he died 18 July 1682. Through his writings, in three of which he strongly rejected partly intensified and partly new attacks on the Protestant faith appearing after the Thirty Years War and in which a piece of cultural history of his times is described, namely, Die Lästerungen des Kapuziners P. Markus ab Ariano [The Blasphemies of the Capuchin Father Markus of Ariano], Den angeblich damals neu erstandenen Messias [The Alleged Then Newly Resurrected Messiah] and Die üppig aufgeschossenen Wundermänner [The Abundant Constant Miracle-Workers], he has earned an honorable name. The same are listed in: Kirchengallerie der Reu?ischen Länder [Gallery of the Churches of the Reuss Lands], Part II. p. 96 [At that time, the Vogtland belonged to the Counts von Reuss, the same family that has been naming, since 1197, all the sons Heinrich after Henry VI, the Holy Roman Emperor]

      719. The Poltergeist of Schwickershausen

      [Page 473] In the District of Heldburg lies a village with the name of Schwickerhausen, and in it there lived a farmer called Hans or Heinrich Kegel. The week before Easter in the year 1666 [Palm Sunday, 8 or 18 April 1666], he heard a little tap under the standing bed in the room and caught sight of the ghost, which looked like the Hinzelmann [household fairy], had the figure of a child, but with a golden crown on its head. It said only that it was an angel, and that it was the spirit of a recently deceased woman. With a little bit of courage, he held out his hand and felt that its little hand was icy cold, and shuddered. But it promised anyone, who holds out his or her hand to it, a treasure of nine thousand ducats, which made the people so brave, that for such a considerable sum, they held out their hands to the devil and his grandmother's hand with joy. From there, the racket went off in the house until nobody could bear it, and from the house it spread with the frightful ghost to the whole village, so that the peasant at wits' end over their bodies and their souls sent for the pastors of Hellingen and Heldburg, who went off together, the Heldburger called Magister Buchenröder and the Hellinger Johann Hase. They said to the peasant of Schwickershäusen, that they wanted to offer their own handshake for such a filthy bargain to the living Devil in person, which frightened the peasant almost to death. Now, the pastors began to heal with honest prayers and sermons, which did not please the spirit in the least; it cried out, "Give me a child, so I would leave!” – “The hell you shall have, but no child!” exclaimed the Pastor of Hellingen, and since he would not give the spirit [page 474] any soft words, it let out a long and steady stream of profanities [literally, “cauterwauled with broad words for a long time”]. Since the ghost would not yield, neither did the Hellinger pastor, until his extraordinary persistence after [1 or 11 June 1666] the Monday night after Trinity Sunday brought the spirit to the surrender. Thus it had knocked and pounded, rumbled and blasphemed three times for three weeks, yet he was finally subdued by the prayers, as long as the preachers stayed with [literally, "listened to”] the Scriptures: But we want to stop at the prayers and words of the Gospel, and so must the hobgoblin from Schwickershausen, the spirit of superstition, surrender; however, the true, shape-shifting Hinzelmann did not really surrender at the same time, because it was still in the very recent times and crowds are flocking at the same place to a faith-healer and wise man, who can do more than just taking money [literally, “eating the bread”].

      ***************************************************
      The following was compiled by Wilbur Hanson Kalb:
      Michael Buchenröder is in Dr August Beck’s 1865 biography of Ernst the Pious, the Duke of Saxe-Gotha and Altenburg, because his advice and services were valued by the Duke.  When the Duke died in 1675, funeral sermons were preached in his name throughout the Duchy.  One of them came from Buchenröder.   But, as shown by Google Books’ search engines, he appears only once in the main body of the biography, when Dr Beck, the Ducal Archivist of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha under Duke Ernst II, writes about piety, the defining characteristic of the Duke.  Looks like the Duke had been corresponding with the Rev. Buchenröder.

      The German original :

      Die frühzeitige Gewöhnung an jene geistlichen Beschäftigungen machte auf Herzog Ernsts empfängliches Gemüth einen so tiefen und unauslöschlichen Eindruck, daß er beim Heranwachsen auf weltliche Vergnügungen mit fast gleichgiltigem Auge hinblickte.  Sein Sinn ward von der Vergänglichkeit alles Irdischen auf die Ewigkeit des Ueberirdischen hingelenkt.  So sagte er einst zu dem Superintendenten Michael Buchenröder zu Heldburg :  „was hat man doch von zeitlichen Ergötzungen in der Welt?  nichts als Beschwerungen und Müdigkeit ; das ewige Gut macht rechten Muth”.  In allen seinen Handlungen, selbst als er den Jahren nach noch Kind war, offenbarte sich eine christliche Gesinnung, ein bedächtiger Ernst und jene heilige warme Liebe, welche alle Menschen mild umfaßt.

      The English translation :

      The early habituation to those spiritual occupations made so deep and indelible an impression on Duke Ernst’s receptive mind that, when he was growing up, he looked at worldly pleasures with almost an indifferent eye.  His purpose was drawn from the impermanence of all earthly things to the permanence of the supernatural.  As he once said to the Superintendent Michael Buchenröder of Heldburg :  “What do we have of temporal pleasures in the world?  Nothing but weight and fatigue ; the eternal good makes proper courage.”  In all his actions, even when he was still a child, a Christian sentiment, a deliberate earnestness, and that sacred warm love, which gently embraces all men, was revealed.
