    Herman Schell, Theologist

    * 28. February 1850 in Freiburg
    † 31. May 1906 in Würzburg

    During his theological education Schell already aroused the displeasure of his teachers: in 1870 he was expelled from the Freiburg theologist seminary for disciplinary reasons. In 1873, he gained his doctorate in philosophy and in 1885 his doctorate in theology. He taught at the JMU starting in 1884. His reformist writings caused sensation and displeasure at the same time. Some of his ideas were first put on the Index by the Vatican but later in the course of the Second Vatican Council (1963-65) finally approved. He particularly stood up for a better education of the Catholic population and an opening of the Church.

    His home was at Friedenstraße 25.
