Johann Christoph Glaubitz
Johann Christoph Glaubitz (c. 1700 – 30 March 1767) was an architect of German descent who is generally considered to be the most prominent Baroque architect in the lands of the former Grand Duchy of Lithuania. Glaubitz was born in Schweidnitz (Świdnica), Duchies of Silesia, and spent the first 37 years of his life there. After a devastating fires occurred in 1737 in Vilnius, he was called to rebuild Lutheran St. Johns' Church, which in 1555 had been funded by German merchants. Glaubitz, who was among the leaders of the Lutheran community[1] of Vilnius, is credited for developing a distinct Lithuanian school of Baroque architecture, known as Vilnian Baroque, which is best reflected in the cityscape of the Old Town of Vilnius. This has contributed to the widespread naming of Old Vilnius as the "City of Baroque". There are at least four churches in Vilnius reconstructed by Glaubitz, namely the Church of St. Catherine (1743),[2] the Church of the Ascension (1750), the Church of St
