LOPES, Caetano (lo-pes), Brazilian historian, born in Bahia in October, 1780; died in Paris, 22 December, 1860. He was a mulatto, and, being the son of wealthy parents, received a good education in the college of Bahia, finishing his studies in Paris, where he was graduated in medicine, and entered the French army in 1808 as assistant surgeon. He served during the reign of Napoleon, but resigned in 1815, and practised his profession in Brazil for several years, but settled in Paris in 1822, and engaged in literary work. He devoted his time principally to the study of Brazil and Brazilian authors, whose works he wished to popularize in Europe. Lopes became corresponding member of the Paris academy of inscriptions and belles-lettres. In 1843 he was presented with a gold medal by the historical institute of Rio Janeiro for his historical works, and he also received many proofs of esteem from the emperor Pedro. He wrote under the pen-name of Caetano L. de Moura. His works, which are numerous and noted for purity of language and brightness of style, include "Diccionario geographico historico e descriptivo do imperio do Brazil, obra collegida e composta per Milliet de Saint Adolphe, e traduzida em portuguez do mesmo manuscripto inedito frances, com numerosas observacoes addicoes" (2 vols., Paris, 1839); "Arte de se curar a si mesmo has doencas venereas" (1845); "Historia de Napoleao Bonaparte," which was written by order of Pedro I. for the primary schools of Brazil (2 vols., 1846);" Diccionario bibliographico Brasiliense" (6 vols., 1847-'52) ; "Diccionario estatistico geographico do imperio do Brazil " (3 vols., 1853); and "Historia germ do imperio do Brazil" (3 vols., 1854). He was also the author of Surgical works.
