Alegambe, Philippe born at Brussels, Jan. 22, 1592, became a Jesuit at Palermo in 1613, theological professor at Gratz, 1629, and finally prefect of the German Jesuits. He died Sept. 6, 1652. He made large additions to Ribadaneira's Catalogus Scriptt. Soc. Jesu, of which he published a revised edition at Antwerp, 1643. P. Sotuel (Southwell) in 1675 published at Rome a new edition of the book, with the last additions and corrections of Alegambe. He also wrote Heroes et Victimae charitatis Soc. Jesu (Rome, 1658, 4to) and Mortes Illustres et Gesta eorum de Soc. Jesu, qui in odium fidei occisi sunt (Rome, 1657, fol.). — Landon, Eccles. Dict. 1, 228; New General Biog. Dict. 1, 148.
