Gunther "began to publish a series of eight works seeking to demonstrate the truth of positive Christianity in the light of reason alone, confuting pantheism but also rejecting scholasticism. They were widely hailed and condemned, had great influence on the Old Catholic group, and in 1857 were placed on the Index. He submitted to the decree, published nothing more, and died in Vienna on February 24 " - John J Delaney and James Edward Tobin; Dictionary of Catholic Biography; page 522.
