Professor Feulner receives second Knighthood for work with Catholic Church

IMG-20181210-WA0003Dr. Hans-Jürgen Feulner of the University of Vienna, Austria, a liturgical expert who played a key role in the liturgical commission that developed Divine Worship: The Missal has been awarded a second Knighthood for his contribution to the Catholic Church and to society.   Here Professor Feulner is shown being greeted by Archduke Simeon of Hapsburg-Lorraine who installed him as a Knight in the Constantinian Order of St. Georg at a ceremony in Innsbruck, Austria on Dec. 10.


Professor Feulner is also a member of the Board of Directors of the Anglicanorum Coetibus Society.

In a message to the Society president from Austria, Professor Feulner said:  “The Archduke told me at lunch he was impressed by my work for former Anglicans and would like to talk more in Vienna soon.”

This is not the first high honor Professor Feulner has received.

Pope Francis knighted him in Dec. 2014, elevating him to the Pontifical Equestrian Order of St. Gregory the Great along with Dr. Clinton Brand for their work on the Anglicanae Traditiones commission, which developed the Divine Worship: the Missal, the liturgy used by the Personal Ordinariates for former Anglicans in the Catholic Church.
