Veit Dietrich, also known as Vitus Theodorus or Vitus Diterichus (1506-49), was a German theologian, writer and reformer. While in the University of Wittenberg Philipp Melanchthon recognized Dietrich’s talent and encouraged him. Later, he was Martin Luther's housemate and a close confidant. As such Dietrich accompanied Luther to the Marburg Colloquy and stayed with him during the Diet of Augsburg in 1530 at the Fortress of Coburg.
