Very decorative portrait of Wolfgang Lazius, engraved by Theodor de Bry (1528-1593) and published in Jean Jacques Boissard, "Icones Virorum Illustrium".

Wolfgang Laz, better known by his Latinized name Wolfgang Lazius (October 31, 1514 June 19, 1565), was an Austrian humanist who worked as a cartographer, historian, and physician. Lazius was born in Vienna, and first studied medicine, becoming professor in the medical faculty at the University of Vienna in 1541.
He later became curator of the imperial collections of the Holy Roman Empire and official historian to Emperor Ferdinand I.
In that capacity, he authored a number of historical works, in research for which he travelled widely, amassing (and sometimes stealing) documents from numerous monasteries and other libraries. He also produced many maps of Austria, Bavaria, Hungary, and Greece, now considered important in the history of cartography, in particular, his Typi chorographici provinciarum Austriae (1561) is sometimes seen as among the earliest historical atlases.
