A Portuguese exegete and preacher, born at Lisbon in 1543; died at Coimbra in 1615. In 1558 he entered the Society of Jesus . He was professor of scripture for many years at Coimbra and Evora and preached with such zeal that he was styled the Apostle of Portugal. He published two works:

  • "Commentaria in concordiam et historiam evangelicam" (4 vols., Coimbra, 1599-1611). This work, which is a treasure house for preachers on the Gospels, was freqently reprinted in Germany, Italy, and France. The last edition was printed at Sugsburg, 1642.
  • "Itinererarium filiorum Israel ex Aegypto in terram repromissis" (Lyons, 1620). It is a useful commentary on the Book of Exodus .
