About BENJAMIN ELBEL (from Wikipedia):
******Benjamin Elbel (b. 1690 d. 1756) was a German Franciscan moral theologian. Elbel was born at Friedberg, Bavaria. He belonged to the Strasburg Franciscan province, was lector of theology, and held high positions in the order. He died at Soflingen. His major work, THEOLOGIA MORALIS DECALOGALIS ET SACRAMENTALIS passed rapidly through several editions. Elbel advocated probabilism.
