About this title


The statue of Saint Vincent founder Boniface Wimmer, O.S.B., was one of the crowning achievements in the career of Austrian sculptor Ferdinand Seeboeck. This book features the long lost story of the memorial statue Seeobeck created in honor of Archabbot Wimmer, from its inception to its completion. The previously unpulibhsed essay is printer here for the first time.

About the Author:

The late Father Blase Strittmatter, O.S.B., was a student in Rome at the time Ferdinand Seeboeck was working on the Wimmer statue. Father Blase was a gifted storyteller, with a strong memory and a keen eye for detail. His vivid description of the life of a seminarian in Rome in the late 1920s, and of the methodical work of sculptur Seeboeck, provides a behind-the-scenes look at a memorial which stands as a testament to the evangelization work of the founder of Benedictine monasticism in North America.
