Reithmayr, Franz Xaver

Reithmayr, Franz Xaver, doctor and professor of theology, a Roman Catholic divine of Germany, was born in 1809 at Illkofen, near Regensburg. In 1832 he was made priest; in 1836 the Munich University made him doctor of theology; in 1837 he was extraordinary professor; in 1841 ordinary professor of the New Test. exegesis, and died Jan. 26, 1872. Reithmayr was one of the most prominent theologians of the Roman Catholic Church, and published in 1838 a work on patrology, in 1845 a Commentary on the Epistle to the Romans (Regensb. 1845). In 1832 he published his Introduction to the Canonical Books of the New Testament (ibid.); and in 1865 a Commentary on the Epistle to the Galatians. His last great work was the edition of a German translation of the fathers, which he edited in connection with others, and which is still in the course of publication at Kempten, under the title Bibliothek der Kirchenviter.
