Spanish missionary, apostle of Brazil. Born in 1534 in Laguna, Teneriffe, Canary Islands; died in 1597 in Reritigba, Brazil. He entered the Society of Jesus, 1551, and went to Brazil, 1553, where in spite of delicate health he worked among colonists and savages for 45 years. Surnamed "Thaumaturgus," on account of miracles and prophecies, it is said that he had a remarkable attraction for birds and even wild beasts. He wrote a Tupi grammar and dictionary and became rector of the College of Saint Vincent, and later Jesuit Provincial of Brazil.
