a German canonist, was born Jan. 25, 1719, at Waitzenkirchen, in Austri. He joined the Benedictines, and became successively professor of philosophy at the University of Salzburg, and of canon law at Fulda. His views, very much opposed to ultramontanism, led him into trouble, which induced him to return to Salzburg, where he was appointed archiepiscopal counsellor in 1776, and died April 20, 1786. He wrote Praelectiones canonicae juxta titulos librorum Decretaliumn ex monumentis, auctoribus et controversiis (Antwerp, 1762, 1763, 3 vols. 4to): — System historico- criticuma divisarumpotestatum in legibus matrimoniclibus impedimentorum dirimentium (Francf. 1771, 8vo): — Apologia historico- critica (ibid. 1771, and Vienna. 1776, 8vo): — Compendium prcelectionum canonicarum juxta libros V Decretalium (Francf. 1773 and 1779, 2 vols. 8vo): — Thomassinus abbreviatus, seu vetus et nova Ecclesice disciplina de benefciis et beneficiariis (Salzburg, 1775, 4to): — Manuale select. conciliorum et calonrm juxta abbatis de Fleury Historiam ecclesiasticam (ibid. 1776, 4to): — Specimnen cultioris jurisprudentice canonicce cad justfas ideas divindi primatus in Romana ecclesia evolvendas (ibid. 1777, 8vo): — De dignitate utriusque cleri scecularis et regularis (ibid. 1786, 8vo).
