a Swiss Reformed theologian and controversialist. He was born at Fehraltorf, the son of Adrian Wirth, a minister. He studied at Marburg and Heidelberg. Returning to Switzerland, he joined the church of Zurich, and was a pastor and schoolteacher. He ministered at Fraum√ľnster from 1594 to 1623, and died at Zurich. His anti-Catholic writing was against the supposed harmony of Catholic doctrines and institutions with the early Church, concentrating on baptism, the Eucharist, church festivals, fasting, religious orders, the rule of the papacy, and funerals.
