ZARATE, Miguel, Spanish educator, born in the province of Alava in the beginning of the 16th century; died in Puebla, Mexico, in 1583. He entered the Franciscan order in his native province, and about 1525 went to Mexico, where he was professor of philosophy and theology in the College of Santa Cruz de Tlaltelolco. In a short time he became so proficient in Aztec that he was appointed professor of that language, and taught many scholars, among whom was the famous Father Juan Bautista. He was also an efficient missionary, greatly beloved by the natives, and became superior of the convent of Puebla, in which post he died, leaving many interesting manuscripts, which were first preserved in the archives of the College of San Buenaventura, but are now in the National library in the city of Mexico. They include " Noticias interesantes g la Historia civil y ecclesisistica de Mexico" and "Opdsculos doctrinales y morales en Lengua Mexicana." Agustin Betancourt and Leon Pinelo mention them and give frequent extracts from his history.
