Heinrich Bebel (1472 in Ingstetten (now part of Schelklingen) - 1518 Tübingen) was a German humanist.

Biography

He was an alumnus of Krakow and Basel universities, and from 1497 professor of poetry and rhetoric at the University of Tübingen. His fame rests principally on his Facetiae (1506), a curious collection of bits of homely and rather coarse-grained humor and anecdote, directed mainly against the clergy; on Proverbia Germanica (1508; new ed., Leyden, 1879); and on his Triumph of Venus, a keen satire on the depravity of his time. He was a friend of Erasmus.
