Conrad of Marburg

Conrad of Marburg, d. 1233, German churchman. He was confessor (1225–31) of St. Elizabeth of Hungary and administrator of her husband's benefices in his absence. His zeal against heresy earned him appointment (1231) as first papal inquisitor in Germany. His harshness made him much disliked, and he was murdered.
