The article examines the will made by the Lübeck merchant Hinrik Hoveman in 1545. The objective of the article is two-fold: firstly, to provide a full edition of the will included in FMU entry 2960, which has not been edited in its entirety. Secondly, to make an analysis of the will against its contemporary context. Hinrik Hoveman's religious bequests are in focus and what these tell about his social position, origin, and religiosity. The article demonstrates how wills provide important insight into the religious life on locations, such as Turku, where other sources are absent.
