Cabrera, Alfonso De
Cabrera, Alfonso De a Spanish Dominican, was born at Cordova about the middle of the 16th century. He was sent, soon after his elevation to the priesthood, to preach the Gospel in America. After his return he preached with wonderful success in the chief cities of Spain; and died, worn out by his excessive labors, Nov. 20, 1598, before he had completed his fiftieth year. He left four volumes of sermons and some treatises, which have often been printed in Spain, and at Paris and Palermo.
