HERRERA, Miguel da Fonseca e Silva, Brazilian historian, born in Para in 1763; died in Bahia de Todos os Santos in 1822. He became a priest, and at his death was vicar of the cathedral of Bahia. He gathered an important collection of documents, which he bequeathed to the historical institute of Rio de Janeiro, which had presented him in 1820 with a gold medal. He published " Memorias historicas e politicas da provineia de Bahia" (3 vols., Bahia, 1815), a collection of rare documents, valuable to the historians of Brazil, and " Corographia Brasilica, seu Descripcao fisica, historica e politica do Brasil" (Bahia, 1819).
