ANCHIE. TA, Jose de (an-chee-ay'-ta), Portuguese missionary, born at Laguna, in Teneriffe, Canary islands, in 1533; died in Brazil, 9 June 1597. He was a relative of Loyola's. In 1553 he went from Coimbra, where he had been stationed, as a missionary to Brazil, where he founded a College for the conversion of natives, and was appointed governor of the converted Indians. His life was passed in danger, privation, and arduous labor. He was believed by both whites and Indians to have the power of working miracles, and was commonly called the "Apostle of Brazil." The academy of sciences at Madrid has published a treatise by him on "The Natural Productions of Brazil." See "Vida do Padre Joseph de Anchieta," by Vas-concellos, and an earlier biography by Rodriguez.
