CUEVAS DAVALOS, Alonso, Mexican prelate, born in the City of Mexico, 25 November 1590 ; died 2 September 1665. He was the first native Mexican elected to the archiepiscopal see of Mexico. He studied at the College of San Ildefonso, won the doctor's degree in theology, and then filled the chair of theology in the University of Mexico. He was sent to Puebla as first canon of the cathedral in 1685, and distinguished himself by his charitable work during an epidemic in 1642-'3. Eight years afterward he was translated to the capital, and filled high offices both in the cathedral and in the University, after which he was promoted to the bishopric of Oaxaca, where he succeeded in restoring peace among the revolted population of Tehuantepec, the king of Spain thanking him by a special decree, 2 October 1662. He received in June 1664, his appointment to the see of Mexico, which he occupied until his death. He had begun important reforms, but did not live to finish them.
