Pungel, Nicolaus, Dr.
a Roman Catholic divine, was born at Minster in 1802. Having completed his studies, he was ordained priest in 1825, and for several years labored as chaplain in Riesenbeck and Munster. From 1835 to 1846 he superintended the parish of Riesenbeck, in the meantime pursuing his studies. The result was his work on Gerson's tract, De Parvlis ad Christum Trahendis, together with a Vita Ge soenis, which he published in 1853, and thus became a privat-docent at the University of Munster. He soon became professor of pastoral theology, and died April 24, 1876, as senior of the chapter. — Literarischer Handweiser, 1876, p. 238.
