ZUNIGA, Dionisio de, Central American missionary, born in Guatemala about 1550' died in Chiapa about 1620. He entered the Dominican order in the province of Chiapa, and labored the greater part of his life in the missions among the Quiche Indians, in whose language he was so proficient that, besides translating Friar Francisco Viana's works, written in the dialect of Vera Paz, into Quiche, he also wrote a grammar, a volume of sermons, and several religious treatises in that language, the manuscripts of which are preserved in the episcopal archives of Guatemala. There also existed the manuscript of another work of his. "EL Mare Magnum," a fantastical history of the Indian monarchies on the Pacific coast, but it is lost.
