Abraham a Sancta Clara
a Roman Catholic preacher, highly popular in Vienna, and remarkable for his eccentric writings. His family name was Ulrich Megerle, and he was born in Baden, June 2,1642. In 1662 he entered the order of barefooted Augustinians, and became distinguished, as a preacher, for directness, tact, and pungency, mixed with rudeness. He died Dec. 1, 1709. His sermons and other writings are contained in (unfinished) Sammtliche Werke nach dem Original-texte (Lindau, 20 vols. 1835-50). His Grammatica Religiosa, containing 55 sermons, was reprinted in Latin, 1719 (Colon. 4to).
