Kellerman, Georg

Kellerman, Georg, a celebrated Roman Catholic, was born Oct. 11, 1776, near Munster (Germany), and was educated at the University of Munster and in the Roman Catholic seminary of that place. He was ordained priest Aug. 2,1801, but did not hold any priestly office until 1811, filling up to this time the position of private tutor, in the family of the celebrated count of Stolberg, and to Kellerman, no doubt, is due the strong Roman Catholic tendencies of the Stolberg family. In 1826 Kellerman assumed, besides his priestly duties, those of the professorship of New-Testament exegesis in the Roman Catholic theological school at Munster, which in 1836 he exchanged for those of pastoral theology. December 13, 1846 he was elected bishop of Munster, but he died shortly after, March 29, 1847. He published Predigten (Munster, 1830, 3 vols 8vo; 1831, and 1833): -Gesch. d. A. und N. Test. (an abridgment of the large work of Overberg, and extensively used as a text-book in Roman Catholic schools); and edited several works of 'others.-Wetzer und Welte, Kirchen-Lex. 12:641.
