Dominic Schram





(SCHRAMM).

A Benedictine theologian and canonist, b. at Bamberg, 24 October 1722; d. in the monastery of Banz near Bamberg, 21 September, 1797. He took vows at Banz, 13 November, 1743, and, after being ordained priest, 18 August, 1748, taught at his monastery: at first, mathematics (1757), then canon law (1760), then philosophy (1762) and, soon after, theology. In 1782 he reluctantly accepted the position of prior in the monastery of Michelsberg at Bamberg, whence he returned to Banz in 1787. His chief works are: "Compendium theologiae dogmaticae, scholasticae, et moralis, methodo scientifica propositum", 3 vols. (Augsburg, 1768; 3d edition, Turin, 1837-9); "Institutiones theologiae mysticae", 2 vols. (Ausburg, 1774; 3d edition, Paris, 1868), his best work; Analysis operum SS. Patrum et scriptorum ecclesiasticorum", 18 vols., reaching as far as St. Damasus (Augsburg 1780 96); "Institutiones juris ecclesiastici publici et privati", 3 vols. (Augsburg, 1774-5; 2d ed., 1782); "Epitome canonum ecclesiasticorum ex conciliis Germaniae collecta" (Augsburg, 1774); and a newly-arranged edition of the "Summa Conciliorum" of Carranza continued up to Pius VI, 4 vols. (Augsburg, 1778).
