Camerarius, Joachim, writer, was born in 1500 at Bamberg. His original name was "Liebhard," which he altered to Camerarius because his ancestors had been Kammerer (chamberlains) at the Bishop of Bamberg's court. He was a friend of Melanchthon, whose biography he wrote and a collection of whose letters he published. He died in 1574 at Leipzig.
