New Catholic Encyclopedia: Feneberg

Wer meint, dass der Name „Feneberg“ nur im Allgäu bekannt sei, kann den folgenden Artikel aus der englischsprachigen New Catholic Encyclopedia von 2003 (das Standardwerk vergleichbar mit der LThK) lesen:

Johann Michael Feneberg

By E. D. McShane

Priest and mystic; b. Marktoberdorf (Allgäu), Bavaria, Feb. 9, 1751; d. Vöhringen, Bavaria, Oct. 12, 1812. After studying at Kaufbeuren and the Jesuit Gymnasium at Augsburg, Feneberg was admitted into the Jesuit novitiate at Landsberg a Lech, Bavaria. After the suppression of the Society of Jesus in 1773, he continued his studies toward the priesthood and was ordained in 1775. He taught humanities at the Gymnasium of St. Paul in Regensburg, and at Dillingen, at which time he wrote a plan for studies that caused controversy (Lehrplan, Dillingen 1789). In 1793 he, along with some other professors, was removed from teaching on suspicion of Illuminist tendencies. He was given the parish of Seeg (Allgäu), which he administered with great success. His association with the Pietist Martin Boos, who stayed with Feneberg at Seeg for a year, revived suspicions of unorthodox mysticism. Boos tried to convert Feneberg and his assistants, Christof Schmid and Xaver Bayer, to his doctrine of love of God without works. After an ecclesiastical interrogation at Augsburg in August 1797, Feneberg and his assistants were allowed to return to Seeg. In 1805 he exchanged Seeg for the parish of Vöhringen where he translated the New Testament later edited by M. Wittmann (Regensburg 1808).
