LOPEZ, Juan Francisco, Mexican clergyman, born in Guarena de Caracas in April, 1699; died in Italy in 1778. He was taken prisoner with his father by the English and brought to Jamaica. On his release in 1710 he went to Vera Cruz, where he entered the Society of Jesus in 1715. He taught literature in S. Luis Potosi and Vera Cruz, philosophy in Zacatecas and Mexico, and theology in Merida de Yucatan. He was appointed procurator to Rome and Madrid, and instructed to ask the pope to place North America under the protection of the Blessed Virgin of Guadalupe. On his return to Mexico the governor made him rector of the colleges of Mexico and Puebla. He was forced to leave Mexico in 1767, after the decree of Charles III. suppressing the Jesuit order, and went to Italy. He wrote a great many works, including "Vida del P. Jose Maria Genovesi, Jesuita Siciliano, Misionero de Topia y Californias" (Mexico, 1758) ; "Supplex Libellus SS. Papae Benedicto XIV. oblatus de miraculosa Dei Parentis imagine Mexicea Guadalupensi" (Rome, 1754) ; "Tabla Topografica de todas las Casas regulares y seculares y Misiones de la Provincia J esuitica de la Nueva Espana" (Rome); and "Manual de Parrocos ajustado al Ritual Romano," which was reprinted in 1803, and the 4th Mexican council ordered it to be used by all priests. The life of Lopez was written by Juan Maneiro (Bologna, 1792).
