Tarnoczy, Maximilian Von

Tarnoczy, Maximilian Von a Roman Catholic ecclesiastic, was born Oct. 24,1806, at Schwaz, in Tyrol. Having graduated at the gymnasium at Innsbruck, he entered, in 1824, the clerical seminary at Salzburg, and received the first orders in 1829. He completed his studies at Vienna, and, after having been honored in 1832 with the theological doctorate, he was appointed professor of dogmatics at Salzburg. In 1844 he became a member of the Salzburg chapter, and from that time, being the trusty adviser of the cardinal and prince archbishop Schwarzenberg, he took an active part in ecclesiastical affairs. When Schwarzenberg received the archbishopric of Prague in 1850, Tarnoczy was appointed his successor at Salzburg, and was consecrated June 1, 1851, for that office. In his new position he labored for twenty-five years, and his labors were acknowledged by Pius IX, who made him a member of the college of cardinals, Dec. 22. 1873. After a long illness, Tarnoczy died at Salzburg, April 4,1876. See the fite rarischer Handweiser, 1876, p. 285. (B. P.)
