Biography

Melchior Otto von Voit von Salzburg was born in Eichenhausen, which is today part of Wülfershausen, on 19 June 1603.[1]

He served as a Landrichter (judge) in Würzburg and later as cantor of Würzburg Cathedral.[2]

He was appointed Prince-Bishop of Bamberg on 25 August 1642, with Pope Urban VIII confirming his appointment on 5 May 1643.[1] He was never consecrated as a bishop, and died with the clerical rank of priest.[1]

As bishop-elect, he founded the Ottoniana Academia (named after his patron saint, Otto of Bamberg), which later became the University of Bamberg.[2]

He died on 4 January 1653.[1]
