Blackloe, Thomas was professor of theology in the English College at Douay, and afterwards canon of the Romanist Chapter, formed by William Bishop, in London. He lived about the middle of the 17th century, and was a man of turbulent disposition; many of his writings were condemned by the inquisition, such as, Sonus Buccino: — Appendicula ad Sonum Buccince: Tabulce Suffragales: — Monumethes Excantatus. He also wrote De Medio Animarum Statu, which made much noise at the time. He was accused of teaching in it that the souls in purgatory would not be released until the day of judgment; that the damned feel no corporeal pains, and that in the state of damnation they are happier than people in this life; that the doctrine of the infallibility of the pope is the mother of all heresies.
