Carrio, Lewis

, a learned critic, was of a Spanish family, but born at Bruges, in Flanders. He began to study at Louvain, where he had Lipsius for his school-fellow, of whom he often speaks with respect in various parts of his “Antiquae lectiones,” and his “Ernendationes,” although it has been insinuated that he felt some degree of jealousy of the fame of Lipsius. He prosecuted his studies at Doway and at Paris, and returning to Louvain, was made doctor of laws in 1586, and about the same time lectured on the Institutes of Justinian. He was afterwards appointed royal professor of law, and had some church preferment, but he died young at Louvaine, June 23, 1595, being then president of the college of St. Ives. His classical and critical taste is displayed in 1. “Histojriarum Sallustii fragmenta,” with notes, Antwerp, 1573, 8vo. 2. “Censorinus de die natali,” with the fragment of an unknown author on the same subject, attributed to Censorinus, but which Carrio proves was not his, Paris, 1583, 8vo. Lindenbrog, in his own edition of Censorinus, Leyden, 1642, 8vo, bestows high praise on Carrio, and adopts most of his readings. 3. “M. A. Cassiodori de ortographia libellus,Antwerp, 1579, 8vo. 4. “V. Flacci Argonautica, cum castigationibus,Antwerp, 8vo, and 16mo, and Lyons, 1617, 8vo. 5. “Antiquarum lectionum libri tres,Antwerp, 1576, 8vo, and inserted in Grater’s “Thesaurus” as is his other work, 6. “Emendationum et observationum libri duo,Paris, 4to. 1
