Philipp Busch, an Anabaptist from Königsberg in Franconia, Germany, who according to his confession, was baptized by Hans Hut. Since he remained true to his faith at his trial at Frankenhausen, 17 January 1530, he presumably suffered a martyr's death with his companions. He may have been one of the four Anabaptists who were drowned in Frankenhausen in 1530.
