  • Freidank (auch: Vrîdanc, Vrîgedanc; † vermutlich 1233 in Kaisheim) war ein fahrender Kleriker ohne Weihen (Vagant), der vermutlich aus Schwaben oder dem Elsass stammte. Er dürfte am Ende des 12. Jahrhunderts geboren sein. 1228 bis 1229 nahm er möglicherweise am Kreuzzug Friedrichs II. teil. Als Todesjahr wird nach den Angaben der Kaisheimer Annalen 1233 angenommen. Hartmann Schedel sah 1465 in Treviso nach eigener Angabe ein Grabmal mit Grabschrift eines Freydanck. (de)
  • Freidank (Vrîdanc in medio alto-tedesco; ... – Kaisheim?, 1233?) è un poeta vagante in medio alto tedesco, originario della Germania meridionale, fiorito nei primi decenni del XIII secolo. È noto per il poema didascalico Bescheidenheit (Saggezza di vita, ca. 1215-1230), una silloge di aforismi che conobbero una grandissima fortuna letteraria, ben prestandosi, riadattati e liberamente trascritti nei secoli, ad adattarsi alle mutate esigenze di nuovi fruitori in epoche diverse.
