Conrad Lycosthenes changed his German birth name Wolffhart. He was a Renaissance man, studied philosophy, Latin and Greek, becoming known as a humanist and encyclopedist and maintained a particular fondness for curiosities. At twenty-seven years of age he suffered from hemiplegia, losing the use of his right hand. His brother in law was the famous Basel book printer Johannes Oporinus (Oporin) (1507-1568).
