Raymond, Martin a Spanish Dominican who flourished in the 13th century, near its middle, was in 1250 presiding officer of the eight colleges which the kings of Castile and Aragon had erected in the Dominican convents for the study of the Oriental tongues. The principal object of these schools was to fit out missionaries, and to aid the work of missions in all possible ways. Our Raymond was one of the greatest promoters of that work in his time, and his name deserves to be commemorated in the annals of Christian missions. He died after 1286. He is especially known by his Pugio Fidei contra Mauros et Judeos, ed. by De Voisin (Paris, 1651), and by Carpzov (Leipsic, 1687). See Hagenbach, Hist. of Doctrines, i, 383; ii, 17.
