GONZALEZ-VIGIL, Francisco de Panla, Peruvian author, born in Tacna, 15 September, 1792; died in Lima in 1876. He entered the seminary of Arequipa, and was ordained priest in 1818, but afterward became vice-rector of the College of the independence, of Arequipa. In 1825 he was elected deputy to congress, and came to Lima. He opposed the dictatorship of Bolivar, and voted against the constitution which that general tried to impose on Peru. In 1832 he was again elected deputy, and in 1834 was editor of the " Genio del Rimac," the organ of the Liberal-reform party, but subsequently retired to his native City, whence he was called in 1836 to take charge of the National library. In 1837 he was again elected to congress and in 1838 re-elected, when he proposed the indictment of the government of Gamarra, but afterward devoted himself to literature until he again took charge of the National library. For some time he was one of the editors of " El Constitucional." His great work is "Defensa de la Autoridad de los Gobiernos contra las pretensiones de la Curia Romana" (6 vols., Lima, 1848), the second part of which appeared under the title " Defensa de la Autoridad de los Obispos" (4 vols., 1856).
