Arauxo, Francisco De

Arauxo, Francisco De a Spanish theologian, was born in Galicia of a good family. He entered the Order of St. Dominic in 1601, and, having finished his studies, he taught theology at Bruges, Alcala, and elsewhere. He succeeded Peter de Herrara in the chair of theology at Salamahca, where he taught for twenty years. King Philip IV had formed so high an estimate of him that he used to say that he would follow the opinion of Arauxo alone, though it were opposed to the combined opinion of all the theologians. In 1648 he was made archbishop of Segovia, in which situation he lived precisely as he had previously done, strictly observing in his palace all the rules of his order. He resigned after a time, and retired into a convent of Dominicans at Madrid, where he died in 1664, leaving several works on theological and philosophical subjects,
