LUGO, Francisco de, Spanish missionary, born in Madrid in 1580; died in Valladolid, 17 December, 1652. He was graduated in law at Salamanca in 1600, became a Jesuit two years later, and was professor of theology in Mexico from 1616 till 1632, and afterward in Santa Fe de Bogota, New Granada. To avoid ecclesiastical honors that were tendered him he left for Europe in 1638, but was captured by the Dutch fleet off Havana, and lost most of his manuscripts. After a long captivity he was set at liberty, and arrived in Spain in 1645, and in the next year was sent by the Jesuit province of Castile to Rome as representative in the eighth general congregation of the order. He was there appointed censor of theological works, and theologian of the general of the Jesuits, and when appointed by the pope to a higher dignity declined, and retired to the College of Valladolid, of which he was rector at his death. He published "Discursus praevius ad theologicam moralem "(2 vols., Mexico, 1631; 1 vol., Madrid, 1645) ; "Questiones morales de Sacramentis" (2 vols., Granada, 1644; revised ed., Madrid and Mexico, 3 vols., 1649); "Historia de la Conquista de Nueva Espafia" (5 vols., Valladolid, 1650); and several other theological works. He left also in manuscript a" Relatio de Christianitare in America, et de rebus gestis patrum Socie-tatis Jesu in provincia Novae Hispanbe," which was afterward published in the " Bibliotheca Scriptorum Societatis Jesu."
