Georg Christoph von Zinzendorf came from an old Austrian noble family, that turned in the Protestant religion in the 16th century. When he was studying at the University of Tübingen in 1600 (Theodor ELZE, Die Universität Tübingen und die Studenten aus Krain, p. 102) he made this entry on a leaf of an Album Amicorum.
