Faber, Petrus

(Pierre ) Favre), born in Saxony, 1506, was one of the nine original companions of Loyola in the establishment of the order of Jesuits. He was a zealous coadjutor of Loyola, and rendered great service to the interests of the new order by his missionary journeys into Italy, Spain and Germany.

He died in 1546, on his way to the Council of Trent. His life, by Orlandini, was published at Rome, 1615, fol.; Lyons, 1617, 8vo. — Miigne, Dict. de Biographie, 2:156. SEE LOYOLA; SEE JESUITS.
