Anaya Y Maldonado, Don Diego
Anaya y Maldonado, Don Diego a Spanish prelate, was born at Salamanca about 1360. He was bishop of Salamanca when he was sent as ambassador to the Council of Constance with Martin Fernandez of Cordova. Appointed bishop of Salamanca in 1401, Anaya founded there a college designed to afford gratuitous instruction, and to this he consecrated all his fortune. This college, the first of the kind in Europe, was known by the name of San Bartolomd el Viejo. This generous act was imitated by other prelates. Anaya died in 1440. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog.
