(1604-1668) Latinist and poet, born Ensisheim, Alsace; died Neuberg, Germany. He entered the Society of Jesus, 1624. A notable lyric poet, he is the author of several odes to the Blessed Virgin. His works, which include epics, satires, and dramas, remarkable for his mastery of classical Latin, won him the title of the German Horace. Carmen saeculare, in imitation of Horace, is a panegyric on the missIonary achievements of the Society of Jesus. The only complete edition of his writings was published at Munich, 1729.
