Engelbert abbot of Admont, of the Benedictine order in Styria, was born of noble parents about 1250. He became abbot of Admont about 1297, and died 1331, leaving a great number of works, of which the principal are: De ortu, progressu et fine imperii Romani, published by Gaspard Brusch (Basle. 1553, 8vo; Mentz, 1603, 8vo): — Tractatus super passionem secundum Maatthceum; de statu defunctorum; de Providentia; de causa longaevitatis hominum ante diluvium: Speculum virtutum. Several of his works were published by the learned Benedictine monk Pez, partly in the Thesaurus Anecdotoraum Novissimus (Augsb. 1721), partly in the Bibliotheca ascetica antiquo-nova (Ratisbon, 1723-25). A biography of Engelbert, and a complete list of all his works, are given by Pez, both in an introductory essay in the 1st volume of the Thesaurus and in the preface to the 3d volume of the Bibliotheca.
