Joseph Putzer

Joseph Putzer (b. at Rodaneck, Tyrol, 4 March,1836; d. at Ilchester, Maryland, USA, 15 May1904) was an Austrian Redemptorist theologian and canonist,


He entered the Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer and made his religious profession, 14 August, 1856. Having finished his theological studies at Mautern, Austria, he was ordained 7 August, 1859.

He arrived in New York, 7 August, 1876, was assigned to St. Alphonsus', Baltimore, until 1880, and was occupied in parish work at St. Michael's church until 1884, when he was chosen Superior of St. Mary's, Buffalo, New York. In 1887 he was called to Ilchester, Maryland, to occupy the chair of moral theology and canon law.

His opinion was constantly sought on questions of theology and canon law; he wrote frequently for periodicals and journals, generally signing his articles: "J.P."


He is best known by his "Commentarium in Facultates Apostolicas", five editions, first undertaken by Antony Konings. Putzer revised and enlarged it into practically a new work. On its appearance the "Civiltà Cattolica" (7 Oct., 1893) and "Il Monitore" (31 Aug., 1897) among others praised its clearness, depth, precision, and learning.

Putzer also published an "Instructio de confessariis religiosorum exemptorum" (two editions) and "Jubilæum anni 1901 — Commentarium". He left many unpublished manuscripts.
