Biography/Description

J. should not be confused with Juan de Rojas Sarmiento, a well-known Spanish astronomer, who was his close contemporary. J. was bishop of Girgenti (Agrigento) in Sicily from 1577 to 1578. Eubel, 3.98 (online by subscription). His death date now seems to have been established as 1578. Three of his works, including the Epitome omnium successionum (TUI 1584 t. 8.1), were published by his brother in Salamanca in 1581. The book identifies J. as a member of the college of St. James (called ‘of Cuenca’ after its founder, the bishop of Cuenca) in Salamanca. That he was, as the authority file of the Deutsche Nationalbibliothek says, an inquisitor before he was bishop of Agrigento is certainly possible. His other two works deal with the topic of heresy.
