a famous Spanish preacher, surnamed the "Apostle of Andalusia," because he spent 40 years of his life in preaching to the towns and villages of Andalusia, was born in 1500 at Almodovar del Campo, in New Castile, and died May 10, 1569. He is the author of a number of religious works, which are still held in great esteem by Roman Catholics. A complete edition of his works, together with a biography, was published by Martin Ruiz under the. title Vida y Obras de Juan de Avila, predicador apostolico de l'Andaluzia (Madrid, 1618, 2 vols. 4to, reprinted in 1757). A French translation of his works was published by Arnauld d'Andilly (Paris, 1673, fol.), and a German by Schermer (Ratisbon, 3 vols. 1861).
