Br. Cosmas Wolf, O.S.B., was a Benedictine lay-brother of Saint Vincent Archabbey who was active in the second half of the 19th century. He was a monk, architect, sculptor and designer. Studying sculpture in Munich, Br. Cosmas was trained under the old medieval apprentice system to become a master sculptor and designer/draftsman. He brought to America his talent and created a studio that built church furnishings and decorated dozens of churches in nine states.
