Barbosa, Agostinho a Portuguese prelate and jurist, was born in 1590. He went to Madrid and to Rome, and, destitute of resources, spent his time in the public libraries, recording at night what he had gained through the day. When the Portuguese monarchy was restored, Barbosa, who was still attached to Spain, was made bishop of Ugento by Philip-IV, but died in 1649, soon after having assumed his bishopric. Among other works, he wrote, Formularium Episcopale: — Repertorium Juris Civilis et Canonici: — Varice Juris Tractationes: (Rome, Venice, Paris, and Lyons): — De Officio et Potestate Parochi (Rome, Venice, and Lyons).
