MOC.UER, Andres de (mo-gair), Mexican clergyman, born in Moguer, Spain, in 1505; died in Mexico, 14 October, 1577. He was educated in the convent of San Esteban in Salamanca, where he entered the Dominican order, and continued to study theology, being graduated in 1580. When Friar Bernardo Alburquerque returned from Rome to Mexico in 1533, he carried with him Moguer, who soon became known for his great learning. He rapidly acquired the Mexican language, and, that he might utilize it in the conversion of the Indians, he was transferred to the missions of Oajaca, where he was successful, and became superior of his convent. In 1550 he returned to Mexico and became confessor of the viceroy, Antonio de Mendoza, and judge of the Inquisition. When an epidemic appeared in Tlaxcala in 1576, Moguer asked to be transferred to that place, and with great devotion cared for the sick, selling his library to obtain the means for their relief. After the plague was checked in Tlaxcala he went to Atzcapotzalco, where he fell a victim to the disease, and returned to his convent in Mexico, where he died. He wrote "Historia de la fundacion de la provincia de Santiago de Mejico" (Seville, 1569); " Sermonario de todd el aiao en lengua Mdjicana Libro de ejemplos"; and " Cartas a los prelados en reedmendacion de los Indios." The last three in manuscript, together with others, were in the library of the Dominican convent at Oajaca, but were taken away and lost.
