0JEDA, Diego de, South American poet, born in Seville in 1560; died in Huanuco, Peru, 24 October, 1619. He came to Peru in early youth, became a Dominican friar, and was successively professor of theology in the convent of Cuzco, and rector of the colleges of Cuzco, Lima, and Huanuco. He employed his leisure in composing songs for the choir, and at the solicitation of his friends he sent one of his poems to his old master of philosophy in Seville, who published it under the title of " Cristiada" (Seville, 1611). It is a poem in twelve parts on the passion of Jesus Christ, and George Ticknor, in his "History of Spanish Literature," commends the author for its light versification and its brightness and simplicity. The work is rare, and Nicolas Antonio, in his "Bibliotheca Nova," asserts that a copy could scarcely be found in the 18th century.
