Johannes Wolfgang von Bodman
Von Bodman came from the old Swabian noble family Bodman. He was the son of Hans Adam von Bodman and Mary Magdalene von Sickingen. He had two brothers, Johann Adam and Johann Joseph, little is known of his family.
He was consecrated as bishop on November 26, 1686 at Konstanz. Since the consecrator of him is not known and some of the bishops alive today can trace their episcopal lineage back to him, the person of Johannes von Bodman is very important for the history of the Catholic Church. This so-called von Bodman lineage includes a few members of the episcopate in Indonesia.
