Galvam (or Galvao), Francisco Fernando

a Portuguese orator, was born at Lisbon in 1554. He entered the ecclesiastical ranks, and acquired great renown as a preacher. He was regarded as a classical writer in Portugal. To the vigorous study which gained for him the title of doctor of theology, he added the gift of a powerful memory. He died in 1610. His works have appeared under the following titles: Sermoes do Doutor Francisco-Fernando Galvio Arcediago de Cerveira (Lisbon, 1611): Sermoes dos Festas dos Santos (ibid. 1613): Sermoes dos Festas do Christo (ibid. 1616). He had as editor a writer of merit, Amados Vieira. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Genetale, s.v.
