Sotwell (Properly Southwell, Lat Sotwellus), Nathaniel
Sotwell (Properly Southwell, Lat. Sotwellus), Nathaniel, an English Jesuit of the 17th century, is entitled to notice as one of the historians of his order; but particulars of his life are wanting. Being employed to write the lives of eminent authors among the Jesuits, he carried on the plan of Ribadeneira and Alegambe down to his own times.
His improved edition was published under the title of Bibliotheca Scriptoruns Societatis Jesu, Opus inchoatum a R.P. Petro Ribadeneira, et productum ad annum 1609, etc., a Nathanaelo Sotwello (Rome, 1676, fol).
