Biography[edit]

Diego de Arce y Reinoso was born in Zalamea de la Serena on April 25, 1587, the son of Fernando de Arce y Reynoso, Lord of Arce, and his wife Catalina Ávila y Palomares. He was baptized on May 3, 1587.

Becoming a churchman, he gained the favor of Philip IV of Spain, who appointed him to the Real Cancillería de Granada, the Audiencia de Sevilla, and the Council of Castile. The king also arranged for him to become successively Bishop of Tuy (1635–37), Bishop of Ávila (1637–40), and Bishop of Plasencia (1640–52). On 3 Feb 1636, he was consecrated bishop by Fernando Valdés Llano, Archbishop of Granada, with Gaspar Prieto Orduña, Bishop of Alghero, and Miguel Avellán, Auxiliary Bishop of Seville serving as co-consecrators.

He became Grand Inquisitor of Spain on November 14, 1643, holding that position until 1665. He was long involved in plans to found a school in Zalamea, but the Portuguese Restoration War prevented the beginning of construction of the school until after his death. He died on July 19, 1665.
