Neugard, Trudpert a German Roman Catholic theologian, was born at Villingen, in Baden- Baden, January 23, 1742; studied with the Benedictines, who have a monastery at that place, and joined that order in 1759. In 1765 he was ordained to the priesthood, and in 1767 was made teacher of the Oriental languages and hermeneutics at the theological school in Freiburg. Four years later he was recalled to his monastery, and was given the care of the younger brethren of his order. In 1807, after the secularization of this convent, Neugard went to Austria and lived in monastic retirement. He died about 1815. He left in MS. some historical and ascetical writings. He compiled a history of several monasteries, and assisted on a number of large works: e.g. the Germania Sacra, etc. See Waitzenegger, Gelehrten- u. Schriftsteller-Lexikon, 3:340-343.
