Lukas was a German theologian and composer, the son of Protestant controversialist Andreas Osiander and Katherina Preu. Lukas was a theologian of some eminence, pastor at Esslingen and elsewhere in Württemberg. In 1563 he settled in Stuttgart as a pastor and then as court minister. He was a tutor to Prince Ludwig. In 1596 he became prelate of the protestant monastery in Adelberg but was dismissed in disgrace in 1598 by Ludwig's successor, Prince Friedrich.[1]
