Arevalo, Rodrigues Sanchez De

Arevalo, Rodrigues Sanchez De a Spanish bishop, was born at St. Maria de Nieva, in the diocese of Segovia, in 1404. He studied law at Salamanca, and the kings, John II and Henry IV of Castile, whose secretary he was, made use of his talents on several occasions. When, in 1455, he was sent to Rome to bring to pope Calixtus III the congratulations of his monarch, he was made bishop of Oviedo. Under Paul II he occupied the episcopal see of Zamora, next of Calahorra, and finally that of Palencia. He died October 4, 1470. Most of his works are still in MS. in the Vatican Library; only three have been published, Speculum Vitae Humanae (Rome, 1468): — Historia Hispanica, giving the history from the earliest times to the year 1469 (ibid. 1470): — De Monarchia Orbis et de Origine et Differentia Principatus Imperialis et Regalis (ibid. 1521).
