Leonhard Dientzenhofer

Leonhard Dientzenhofer (also: Johann Leonhard Dientzenhofer; 20 February 1660 - 26 November 1707) was a German builder and architect from the well known Dientzenhofer family of architects.

Life and Work

Leonhard was born in St. Margarethen (Bavaria), District of Rosenheim, the seventh child of Georg Dientzenhofer and Anna Thanner. His four brothers, Georg, Wolfgang, Christoph and Johann, were also well-known architects/builders. On 30 January 1685 in Waldsassen, he married Maria Anna Hager, a sister of the wife of his brother Georg. They had three sons and four daughters. Soon after the death of his wife Maria (6 July 1699), he married in Bamberg Anna Margaretha Sünder from Staffelstein. They had two daughters.

In 1697 he commissioned a reprint (with changed dedication and foreword) of the book Theatrum architecturae civilis by Charles Philippe Dieussart.[1][2]

Leonhard died, aged 47, in Bamberg. His work on Banz Abbey was taken over by his brother Johann.
