A Marano of the fifteenth century. He engaged in a project to subvert the Inquisition in Aragon; failing in this, he joined in a plot to assassinate the inquisitor Pedro Arbues, who was killed on September 15, 1485. Juan was apprehended, and, according to Graetz, committed suicide in prison. Kayserling states that his attempt at suicide was unsuccessful, and that he was drawn, quartered, and consigned to the flames.
