Zair (2)

Conder suggests (Hand-book to the Bible, page 427) that this is "perhaps the ruin Zueireh on the south-west shore of the Dead Sea." Zallwein, GREGORIUS, a Roman Catholic theologian of Germany, was born at Obervinchtach, in the Palatinate, October 20, 1712. In 1733 he joined the order of the Benedictines, and received holy orders in 1737. In 1744 he was elected prior of the monastery at Wessobrunn, and shortly afterwards was called to Strasburg, in Carinthia, as professor of theology, Church history, and canon law. In 1749 he was called to the Salzburg University, and died August 9, 1766. Of his publications, we mention, Fontes Originarii Juris Canonici, etc. (Salzburg, 1754-55): Jus Ecclesiasticum Particulare Germanice ab Era Christi usque ad Carolumn IX Imp. (ibid. 1757): Collectiones Juris Ecclesiastici Antiqui et Novi, etc. (ibid. 1760): Principia Juris Ecclesiastice Universalis et Particularis Genrmanica (1763 sq. 4 volumes). See Doring, Die gelehrten Theologen Deutschlands, 4:770; Winer, Handbuch der theol. Lit. 2:8. (B.P.)
