Andres, JUAN, a Spanish canonist, b. at Xativa, or San Felipe, in Valencia. Of Moorish extraction, he became a Christian in 1587 and entered the priesthood. On the fall of Granada Ferdinand the Catholic invited him to labor in that city for the conversion of the Moors. He wrote a translation in Spanish of the Koran and a work entitled “Confusion de la secta mahometana” (Seville, 1537). It is a work frequently quoted against Mohammedanism. The English version is by Joshua Notstock (London, 1652). According to Fuster, Andreas was also author of a rare work entitled “Practica de Arithmr tica” (Valencia, 1515; Seville, 1537).
