Seifried Helbling

Biography of Seifried Helbling

Seifried Helbling (* 1230) was an Austrian poet.

Helbling is the supposed author of 15 small books of poetry. These poems, composed between 1282 and 1300, are instructional satires written in the form of a dialogue between the poet and his servant. They thoroughly and wittily describe the current state of life and the social mores in the poet's time. Also included are poems of a religious nature, some honoring the Virgin Mary. Helbling's authorship of these 15 books is still in question.

Helbling was also the proprietor of an arboretum in Nußdorf, a suburb of Vienna.
