Fabricius, Andreas

a Roman Catholic divine, was born at Hodege, a village of Liege, A.D. 1520. He studied at Ingolstadt, and became professor of philosophy at Louvain. The bishop of Augsburg sent him as his agent to Rome, where he remained six years under the pontificate of Pius IV. He was afterwards councillor to the duke of Bavaria, and provost of Ottingen, in Suabia, where he died in 1581. His principal work was Harmonia Confessionis Augustinia (Cologne, 1573 and 1587, fol.). He wrote also a Catechismus Romanus ex Decreto Concilii Tridentini, with notes and illustrations (1570 and 1574, 8vo), and some Latin tragedies. Hock, Eccl.
