Abbot Primate Emeritus Notker Wolf passed away on the evening of 2 April 2024. The Archabbot of St Ottilien, who served from 1977 to 2000, was Abbot Primate, i.e. the highest representative of the Benedictine order, from 2000 to 2016. The 83-year-old was widely known not least for his performances on the flute and electric guitar as well as his numerous books on spirituality and various television appearances.

May the merciful God now grant Abbot Primate Emeritus Notker Wolf eternal rest and may the eternal light shine upon him.
Amen.
