Schram (SCHRAMM), DOMINIC, a Benedictine theologian and canonist, b. at Bamberg, October 24, 1722; d. in the monastery of Banz near Bamberg, September 21, 1797. He took vows at Banz, November 13, 1743, and, after being ordained priest, August 18, 1748, taught at his monastery: at first, mathematics (1757), then canon law (1760), then philosophy (1762) and, soon after, theology. In 1782 he reluctantly accepted the position of prior in the monastery of Michelsberg at Bamberg, whence he returned to Banz in 1787.

Patrum et scriptorum ecclesiasticorum”, 18 vols., reaching as far as St. Damasus (Augsburg 1780-96); “Institutiones juris ecclesiastici publici et privati”, 3 vols.
