or tromba marina, trumscheit, nun's fiddle. Try Grove's Dictionary of Music and Musicians. There are good descriptions in Ancient European Musical Instruments by Nicholas Bessaraboff (Harvard U Press, 1941 and an article in Experimental Musical Instruments, v III no. 2. It would be incorrect to simply call it a "monochord", since that is a generic term for a one-stringed instrument, although it is often used for certain types intended to demonstrate or study string behavior.
