This is the translation of the short biography:
From the Franconian line;
Father: Bernhard (1474-1539), on Birkenfeld, bailiff of Würzburg in Königshofen, son of Conrad (d. 1513), bailiff of Würzburg in Arnstein, and of Ursula von Bibra.
Mother: Gertraud (d.1544), daughter of Eberhard von Ebersberg, called Weyhers and of Ursula von Hutten (aunt of Ulrich [the cousin])
As young member (without right to vote) of the Würzburg chapter, Hutten studied in 1518 in Leipzig, in spring 1520 in Wittenberg, November 1520 in Ingolstadt, from 1523/24 in Padua and in 1529/30 in Freiburg im Breisgau. He was allowed in 1530 in the Würzburg cathedral chapter and in 1532 in Eichstätt. In September 1536 the chapter in Würzburg elected him to be the cathedral provost, a position that provided him one of the best benefices in Germany and which he had despite heavy entanglements up to his death. In June 1539 he got elected prince-bishop in Eichstätt. Everybody considered him „one of the best and most academic bishops of his time“, he was always friendly also to dissidents, a fan of the Council and belonged, like Julius Pflug, to the moderate party. Loyal to the Imperator and the Empire, he preserved his double position as Prince of the Empire and bishop. Charles V made him the president of the Ratisbon Colloquy of 1546 (Jan – Mar 20, 1546). Strongly acting against grievances and wanting to elevate the education, he seriously wanted to reunite Christianity. By ordering many works, he supported the sculptors of the first renaissance like Loy Hering and Peter Dell the older. He saved the scattered inheritance of his cousin Ulrich von Hutten and induced the posthumous edition of his dialogue „Arminius“ which started the Arminius-poetry in the German literature.
