SALINAS y CORDOBA, Buenaventura de (sah-lee'-nas), Peruvian clergyman, born in Lima in the latter part of the 16th century: died in Cuerna-vaca, Mexico, 15 November, 1653. He belonged to the Franciscan order, was sent as a commissioner to Spain and Rome in 1637, and returned in 1646 to Mexico as vicar-general. His works, which are mainly devoted to the assertion of the equality of Americans of Spanish race with native-born Spaniards, are "Memorial de las Historias del Nuevo Mundo del Pir6, y memorias y excelencias de la ciudad de Lima" (1680; Madrid, 1639), and "Memorial al Rey Nuestro Senor" (Madrid, 1645). The latter work is not only an apology for himself and those born of Spanish race in the Indies, but also a strong plea for the liberty of the Indians.
