Owen, Lewis

Owen, Lewis, an English theologian and writer, was born in Merioneth County in 1572. After passing some time with the Jesuits in Spain, he left them to reenter the world, and was ever after a bitter opponent of the society. He wrote The Running Register, recording a true Relation of the State of the English Colleges, Seminaries, and Cloysters of all foreign Parts (Lond. 1626); the most curious parts of it are to be found in Restituta, 1:141: — The Unmasking of all Popish Monks, Friars, and Jesuits (ibid. 1628, 4to): — Speculum Jesuiticum, or the Jesuit's Looking-glass (ibid. 1629, 4to); reprinted in Edward Sandys's Europe Speculum.
