Antonio, Augustine

Antonio, Augustine of Saragossa, in Aragon, son of the vice-chancellor of that kingdom; studied at Salamanca, whence he passed into Italy, and made himself master of law, ecclesiastical history, languages, etc. At twenty-five years of age he published Emendittiones et Opiniones Juris Civilis. Paul III made him auditor of the Rota; and Julius, his successor, sent him as legate into England when Philip of Spain went there to marry Queen Mary. He was made successively bishop of Alifa in 1556, and Lerida in 1561, and lastly, in 1576, archbishop of Tarragona, which dignity he held till his death in 1586. Baluze has given a list of his works at the end of his Treatise on the Correction of Gratian, which is the most considerable of his writings. — Dupin, Hist. of Eccl. Writers, 3, 743; Landon, Eccles.
