Haneberg, Daniel Bonifacius

Haneberg, Daniel Bonifacius bishop of Spires, was born June 16, 1816, at Tanne, Bavaria. He studied at Munich, was priest in 1839, and commenced his academical career in 1840. In 1850 he entered the newly founded Benedictine monastery of St. Bonifacius, at Munich, and was made abbot in 1854. In 1861 he went to Algiers and Tunis, and in 1864 to Jerusalem. In 1868 he was called to Rome as consulter of the Romish congregation for Oriental rites, and at the same time to take part in the preparations for the Vatianm Council. Like many others, he was at first opposed to the dogma of papal infallibility, but finally yielded to it. In 1872 Haneberg was appointed bishop of Spires, and died May 31, 1876. He published, Ueber die in einer munchener Handschrift aufbehalten arsabische Psalmenubersetzung des Rabbi Saadia Gaon (Ratisbon, 1841): — Religiose Alterthumer der Hebraer (1844; 2d ed. 1869): — Einleitung in das Alie Testament (1845): —

Hippolyti Arabiae e Codicibus Romanis (1870). From his manuscript Schegg published Evangelium nach Johannes ubersetzt und erklart (1878-80, 2 volumes).
