Albi (or Alba)
Albi (Or Alba), Juan de, a Spanish Carthusian, had a great reputation, in the 16th century, for piety and learning. After acquiring a sound knowledge of theology, and great proficiency in the Oriental languages, especially Hebrew, he took the monastic habit in the Carthusian monastery called The Valley of Jesus Christ, near Segovia, where he died, Dec. 27, 1591. He left, among many other works on Holy Scripture, Sa crarum Simioseon Animadversionum et Electorum ex Utriusque Testamenti Lectione Commentarius et Centuria (printed at his monastery, 1610). Le Mire speaks of another of his writings, Selectee Annotationes et Expositiones in Varia Utriusque Testamenti Diffcilia Loca (1613). See Le Mire, De Script. Scec. XVI; Antonio, Biblioth. Script.
