Aninyon (or Anignon), Michael
Aninyon (Or Anignon), Michael, a Spanish ecclesiastic, was born of an honest but obscure family at Saragossa. He attached himself chiefly to the study of ecclesiastical history, and discharged for fifteen years the office of consulter to the Inquisition. In 1578 or 1588 he printed a work on the primacy of St. Peter and the unity of the Church, entitled Tractatus de Unitate Ovilis et Pastoris, which he himself declares that he had read through a hundred times. It is in the Biblioth. Pontif. of Rocaberti, 16, 333. He was nominated bishop of Algarve, and died Nov. 24, 1654.
