Lugo, Juan De

Lugo, Juan De a learned Spanish Jesuit and cardinal, was born at Madrid, November 25, 1583, and for twenty years was theological professor at Rome; was made cardinal ill 1643, and died August 20, 1660. In his office as cardinal he was distinguished for his plain manner of life and his liberality to the poor. He wrote De Incarnatione dominica (Lyons, 1633, fol.): — De Sacramentis in genere (1635, fol.): — Responsorum Moralium lib. 6 (1651, fol.), etc. All his works were collected in seven large folios (Venice, 1751). Pallavicini boasted of having been his pupil. Liguori names him as a theologian next to Thomas Aquinas.

Lugo's brother FRANCISCO was also a Jesuit, and the author of several theological works. They are of minor value, however. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Gener. 32:212.
