Johannes Trithemius (1 February 1462 – 13 December 1516), born Johann Heidenberg, was a German abbot, lexicographer, historian, cryptographer, polymath, and occultist who had an influence on later occultism. The name by which he is more commonly known is derived from his native town of Trittenheim on the Moselle River in Germany.
