In 1498 the great Saxon humanitarian Johannes Honterus was born in the house on nr 40 Nicolae Bălcescu street. The son of a Black street furrier- this is how the furriers' street was called- became the most known person in the middle age town. The designer of the first map of Transylvania, the author of The Latin Language and Portrayal of the World, the founder of the first press and higher education school in Brasov, as well as of the first paper mill in Romania, studied in Austria and Germany. On his return he reformed the Saxon church. In 1544 he was elected prelate of Brasov. Five years later he lives this world behind. He is buried in the Black church.
