Ulenberg, Caspar

Ulenberg, Caspar a Roman Catholic priest of Germany, was born of Lutheran parents in 1549, at Lippstadt. He studied .at Wittenberg. At Cologne he succeeded in bringing back a cousin of his, who had become a Roman Catholic, to the Lutheran Church; but in 1572 they both joined the Catholic Church, and Ulenberg was appointed teacher at Cologne. In 1575 he received holy orders, was appointed pastor at Kaiserswerth, and in 1583 was made canon of the Church of St. Swibertus. From 1593 to 1615 he stood at the head of the gymnasium in Cologne, where he died as pastor of St. Cunibert's, Feb. 16, 1617. He is the author of Die Psalmen Davids in allerlei teutsche Gesangreimen gebracht (Cologne, 1582; 5th ed. 1709). See Koch, Gesch. des deutschen Kirchenliedes, 2, 442 sq. (B. P.)
