Busenbaum, Hermann a Jesuit writer on moral theology of great repute in the Roman Church, born 1600, in Westphalia, and died in 1688. His Medulla Theologiae Moralis (Paris, 1669) carried out the true ultramontane theory of the pope's authority over human governments and over the lives of kings so fully that it was burnt in 1761 by order of the Parliament of Paris. It has passed through 50 editions, and is still reprinted. It was enlarged by Lacroix to 2 vols. fol. (Colossians 1758).
