PETER OF DUISBURG (d. c. 1326), German chronicler, was born at Duisburg, and became a priest-brother of the Teutonic Order. He wrote the Chronicon terrae Prussiae, dedicated to the grand-master, Werner 61 Orseln, which is one of the chief authorities for the history of the order in Prussia. There is a rhyming translation in German by Nicholas of Jeroschin, which, together with the original, is published in Bd. I. of the Scriptores rerum prussicarum (Leipzig, 1861). See M. Toppen, Geschichte der preussischen Historiographie (Berlin, 1853); and W. Fuchs, Peter von Duisburg and das Chronicon olivense (Konigsberg, 1884).
