Heinrich Schodehoet

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Heinrich Schodehoet OSA († 1515) was an Augustinian hermit and auxiliary bishop in Münster and Osnabrück.


Heinrich Schodehoet came from Dissen and entered a monastery of the Augustinian hermits in Osnabrück. At the University of Rostock he obtained a master’s degree on 7 February 1487 and later called himself professor of theology.

On 8 January 1494 Schodehoet was appointed titular bishop of Tricca and auxiliary bishop in Münster and Osnabrück by the Pope. At that time Konrad von Rietberg was bishop of Münster and administrator of the bishopric of Osnabrück. Schodehoet was consecrated bishop by Konrad von Rietberg on 12 January 1494 in Santa Maria dell’Anima in Rome.

Schodehoet died in 1515, probably in Rengering.
