SCHULTE, AUGUSTINE JOSEPH
Educator; b. Philadelphia, Penn., May 5, 1856; d. Philadelphia, May 23, 1937. He was the son of August and Louise (Bille) Schulte and attended St. Charles Seminary, Overbrook, Pennsylvania (1874–79), and the North American College, Rome (1879–83), He was ordained in Rome on June 3, 1882, receiving his S.T.L. from the Urban College. Having served as vice-rector of the north american college (1883–84), he was, after the death of the rector, Msgr. Louis E. Hostlot, pro-rector from February 1884 to June 1885. When he learned in March 1884 that the Italian government proposed to confiscate the buildings of the college, his quick report to the American bishops enabled them to petition the U.S. government for immediate and effective action. He also promoted the canonical establishment of the College (Leo XIII, brief Ubi primum, Oct. 25, 1884). In 1885 Denis J. O'Connell was chosen rector and Schulte returned to the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, where he was assigned to the staff of St. Charles Seminary. He spent the rest of his career there as professor of liturgy and modern languages, and in disciplinary and administrative capacities. He wrote several articles on rubrical subjects for the old Catholic Encyclopedia and (over the initials S.L.E. and S.L.T.) for the American Ecclesiastical Review. His two books, Benedicenda (1907) and Consecranda (1907, 1956), were useful manuals for the blessings and consecrations of the Latin rite.
