The book: Rare and nice 17th-century third edition of this book by the Jesuit Andreas Brunner. The "Fasti Mariani" hand down a series of prayers and meditations for the entire liturgical year. In the Roman calendar (v.) fasti were called and those days were marked with an F when it was lawful to transact civil or judicial affairs without offending religion (sine piaculo: Varr., De lingua lat., VI, 29).
The author: Andreas Brunner ( November 30 , 1589 in Hall in Tirol – April 20, 1650 in Innsbruck ), was a Jesuit and Bavarian historian. Andreas Brunner entered the Society of Jesus in Landsberg am Lech in 1605 at the age of 16 and then studied at the University of Ingolstadt. After his studies, he worked as a professor of ethics and university preacher in Dillingen (1619/20) and Freiburg im Breisgau. From 1622 he worked as the electoral historiographer and president of the Marian Congregation in Munich and from 1637 as a preacher in Innsbruck.
During the Thirty Years' War he was abducted by the Swedes from Munich to Augsburg in 1632 and held captive as a hostage until 1635. As a Jesuit provincial he traveled to Rome in 1649 to elect the general of the order.
Andreas Brunner's primary work is the Annales virtutis et fortunae Boiorum commissioned by Elector Maximilian. His predecessor and teacher in history was Matthäus Rader SJ. Andreas Brunner had to end the presentation of Bavarian history in 1314, since his presentation of the reign of Emperor Ludwig of Bavaria and his dispute with Pope John XXII. met with opposition from the leadership of the order. On the basis of the material he had collected, the Annales of Nicolaus Burgundus and Johannes Vervaux SJ were continued.
