Born in Bruges of Spanish descent, the author trained at the college des Trois Langues at Louvain and later in law at Cologne. He traveled in Germany and Italy before settling in France. His itinerant academic career ended with his appointment as professor of law at the University of Louvain in 1585, where he eventually became Rector. - Adams C778
