BEDON, Peter, South American clergyman, born in Quito, Ecuador; died there in 1561. He entered the novitiate of the Dominican order at the age of fourteen, completed his studies in Lima, and was then appointed professor of philosophy in the College of that city. In early life he had cultivated painting, and when afterward he had recovered from a dangerous malady, he resolved to devote his leisure to painting pictures of the Blessed Virgin. Several of his works are in the convents of Quito and Santa Fe, and are said to justify the title his countrymen gave him of the Fra Angelico of Ecuador. He founded the convent of La Pena in Quito, and then went to Rio-Bomba, where he founded another convent, but returned to Quito on learning that he had been elected prior of La Pena. In 1619 he was chosen provincial of his order, which office he held until his death.
