Josef Stangl.

Josef Stangl (March 12, 1907 - April 8, 1979) was a Roman Catholic Bishop of Würzburg, Germany.

Born in Kronach, Bavaria, Stangl became a priest on March 16, 1930, and he was appointed by Pope Pius XII as bishop of Würzburg on June 27, 1957.

He approved the exorcism on Anneliese Michel "after careful consideration and good information" by Father Arnold Renz. On 8 January 1979, Stangl withdrew as a bishop of Würzburg and died three months later in April 1979.

Stangl consecrated Father Joseph Ratzinger, now Pope Benedict XVI, as a Bishop on May 28, 1977.

He died in Schweinfurt two years later.
