ZAMORA, Alonso de (thah-mo'-rah), Colombian historian, born in Bogota in 1660; died there about 1725. He entered the Dominican order in early life, and, after finishing his studies in the College of Santo Tomas, passed several years in the southeastern missions, laboring among the Indians of the head-waters of Meta and Ocaviare rivers. On his return to Bogota he acquired great fame as a theologian and litterateur, and was appointed examiner of the synod. In this post he made a specialty of the study of Granadan history, and collected numerous rare documents. In 1690 he was appointed historian of his order, and began to write his great work, which was concluded in 1696, under the title "Historia del Nuevo Reino de Granada y de la provincia de San Antonio en la religion de Santo Domingo " (Barcelona, 1701).
