Navarrette, Baltazar a celebrated Spanish theologian of the 17th century, joined the Dominicans of Saragossa. He taught letters and theology in different colleges of his order. He is especially known by his Controversice in D. Thonsce ejusque scholae defensio (Valladolid, 1605, 1609, 1634, 3 volumes, fol.), a work of celebrity still in Spain, though not as much esteemed for its learning as for its casuistry. Navarrette has left other works of theology, mentioned by Echard. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.v.; Genesis Biog. Dict. 11:174.
