Sigismund Ernst Hohenwart (1745-1825) was ex-Jesuit and the third bishop of Linz from 1809 to 1825. He had been a cathedral canon of Gurk and Vicar-General of Klagenfurt. He was appointed by the emperor on 10 January, 1809, but the appointment did not receive papal approbation until December, 1814, on account of the imprisonment of the pope. The bishop took energetic measures against the visionary followers of Pöschl and Boos, who were then numerous in Upper Austria.
