Paul of Burgos. Paul de Santa Maria, a Spanish Archbishop, Lord Chancellor, and exegete, born at Burgos about 1351; died 29 August, 1435. The most wealthy and influential Jew of Burgos (Jewish name Solomon-Ha-Levi), and a scholar of the firs rank in Talmudic and Rabbinical literature, a Rabbi of the Hebraic community, he was converted to Christianity by the irrefutable logic of the Summa of S. Thomas. He received baptism 21 July, 1390. His reputation as a Biblical writer chiefly rests upon his Additiones to the Postilla of Nicolas of Lyra, Nuremberg, 1481; Venice, 1481; and many other editions.
