Antonio de Araujo

Jesuit; Brazilian missionary (d. 1632)

Araujo, ANTONIO DE, a Brazilian missionary, b. at St. Michael’s, in the Azores; d. 1632. He entered the Society of Jesus in Bahia, and was for nine years Superior of the Missions of Brazil. He wrote a catechism in the native language of Brazil. Southwell says of it: “This catechism, begun by others in Brazilian, he augmented considerably. It was published at Lisbon under his name, and is regarded as without a superior in the catechetical art. It was afterwards translated into the native American tongue.”
