Dannemayr, Mathias a Roman Catholic theologian of Germany, was born February 13, 1741, at Oepfingen, in Wurtemburg. He studied at Freiburg, and was appointed in 1773 professor of church history there. In 1786 he was called to Vienna, but exchanged his position for that of a custos in the university library, on account of feeble health, in 1803.

N.T. (1783): — Institutiones Ecclesiasticae Novi Testamenti (Viennae, 1788; 2d ed. 1806). See Doring, Die gelehrten Theologen Deutschlands, 1:308 sq.; Winer, Handbuch der theol.
