German term or phrase: Bugenhagen
appears to be slang, and the context makes it clear that it's talking about a preacher: "Damals war das so, der Bugenhagen hat immer ganz lange gepredigt, der hatte noch den alten Stil."

Explanation:
http://www.luther-in-bs.de/informat.htm

Hier begann offiziell die Predigt des Evangeliums nach der kirchlichen Neuordnung der Reformation. (Nach Augenzeugen berichten konnte das große Gotteshaus die riesige Volksmenge nicht fassen, als Martin Luthers Freund und Mitarbeiter Johannes Bugenhagen 1528 hier predigte !)

Wenige Monate bevor Johann Bugenhagen 1528 nach Braunschweig kam, um die Reformation der Kirche dieser Stadt durchzuführen, trug sich hier ein Ereignis zu, das ich zu Beginn kurz schildern möchte.

Does that fit your context?

Johannes Bugenhagen


Explanation:
Born in East Pomeranian, Johannes Bugenhagen studied humanistics in Greifswald and was ordained as priest before taking up diverse positions as a teacher of the Scriptures and as Father of the Church. Initially Bugenhagen categorically disapproved of Luther's anti-Roman paper "The Babylonian imprisonment of the church" published in 1521.

Hope this helps.

Bugenhagen


Explanation:
I'm quite sure that this is a name. Do a quick internet search and you will only find Bugenhagen as a person's or city's name, the most famous of which is a friend of Martin Luther's.

Cheerio,
Dierk
