Pedro Cornejo de Pedrosa
Cornejo entered the Carmelite order at a young age. He received his doctorate from the University of Salamanca, and then taught philosophy and theology at the same institution.
Similarly when he traveled to Rome—for the general elections—Robert Cardinal Bellarmine is reported to have consult with him on several occasions, while Pope Paul V, upon hearing him lecture, called him "a truly worthy doctor of the Church of God."
Some of his lectures were gathered and published posthumously under the title, Theologia Scholastica et Moralis etc. (Bamberg, 1671).
