Quevedo y Villegas, Francisco Gomez de

Resource Toolbox

a Spanish author of note, was born in Madrid, Sept. 26, 1580; was educated at the university at Alcala, and when only fifteen years of age took his degree in theology. He would probably have risen to great distinction in the Church had not his hot temper involved him in strife and controversy, which ended in a duel and exile. He removed to Italy and there also led a restless and eventful life. He died at Villanueva de los Infantes in 1645. Many of his writings were confiscated by the government, but among those that reached the public we are interested in the treatises On the Providence of God: God's Politics and Christ's Government, in which he attempts a complete body of political philosophy based upon the example of the Saviour: On a Holy Life: The Militant Life of a Christian, etc. There is a complete edition of his works by Sancho (Madrid, 1790-94, 11 vols. 8vo), and a more recent one by Guerra y Orbe (ibid. 1852).
