ZAPATA y SANDOVAL, Juan, Mexican R. C. bishop, born in the city of Mexico in 1545; died in Guatemala, 9 January, 1630. He entered the order of St. Austin in 1563 was several years professor of philosophy and theology, and in 1602 was called to Spain as director of studies of the College of San Gabriel de Valladolid. In 1613 he was nominated bishop of Chiapa, where he founded a seminary, and in 1621 he was promoted bishop of Guatemala. In that city he laid the foundation for the Monastery of the Conception, and instituted the literary university, and was so prodigal in charities that he died in debt. He wrote " De Justitia distributiva et acceptione personarum ei opposita; Diceptatio pro Novi Indiarum Orbis re-rum moderatoribus, summisque regalibus" (Madrid, 1609); "Cartas al Conde de Gomera, Presidente de Guatemala, sobre los Indios de Chiapa"; and "Cartas al Rev sobre la Visita y Estado de la Didcesis de Chiapa." The last two, in manuscript, were used by Father Antonio Remesal in his "His-toria de Chiapa y Guatemala" (Madrid, 1619), are now in the archives of the Indies in Simaneas, and are to be published in the government collection.
