Who was Ludwig Babenstuber?

Ludwig Babenstuber was a German philosopher and theologian and vice-chancellor of the University of Salzburg.

He was born in 1660 at Teining in Bavaria. Having completed his early studies he entered the novitiate of the Order of St. Benedict at Ettal Abbey in 1681, made his religious profession in 1682, and thereafter devoted the greater part of his life to teaching.

At the commencement of his studies he had given no promise of brilliancy, but by his untiring application and industry he shortly acquired so vast a store of knowledge, that he soon came to be regarded as one of the most learned men of his day -- "vir comsummatae in omni genere dictrinae et probitatis", as he is styled in Dom Egger's Idea ordinis Hierarchico-Benedictini, and in the History of the University of Salzburg. Until 1690 Babenstuber was Director of the scholasticate of his order at Salzburg, taught philosophy there from 1690 to 1693, then went to the Augustinian Schlehdorf Abbey to teach theology in the monastery of the Canons Regular.
