Eymeric, Nicolas a Spanish inquisitor, was born about 1320 at Gerona. He entered the Dominican order in 1334, and was made inquisitor general of Aragon in 1336. His zeal was too great even for his superiors, and he was removed from his office for a time, but after some years he returned to it. He was umoted especially for his fierce pursuit of the partisans of Raymond Lull (q.v.). His Directoriun Inquisitorum has been often reprinted (Rome, 1578, 1589, 1597, fol.; Venice, 1591, 1607). He died January 4, 1399. — Quetif et Echard, Script. Ord. Praed. 1:716; Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, 16:867. SEE INQUISITION.
