Albrecht von Strasburg (Albertus Argentinus)
His memory has been preserved in the little manuals (Steinmetzbüchlein) of the mediæval apprentices, and in the traditions, oral and written, of the mediæval Masonic lodges (Bauhütten). He is not mentioned by any chronicler or in any historic document. According to tradition Albrecht took up in 1050 the construction of the Cathedral of Strasburg abandoned in 1028.
