Matthew Rader

Philologist and historian, born at Innichen in the Tyrol in 1561; died at Munich, 22 December, 1634. At the age of twenty he entered the Society of Jesus and subsequently taught the humanities for twenty-one years in different Jesuit institutions. He wrote several school dramas, but was particularly known among Catholics and non-Catholics for his scholarly attainments. In 1599 he published an improved and expurgated edition of Martial, and in 1628 one of Quintus Curtius. His edition of the Acts of the Eighth Ecumenical Council was incorporated by Labbe and Cossart in their collection of the Acts of councils; that of the works of St. John Climacus, published in 1614, was reprinted by Migne in his Greek Patrology (LXXXVIII, 585 sqq.). More important than the publications just mentioned were his now very rare works: "Bavaria Sancta" (Munich, 7), and "Bavaria Pia" (Munich, 1628). Both were reprinted in 1704 at Dillingen and Augsburg, and the former was partly published in a German translation by Father Rassler at Straubing in 1840.
