Cursus philosophicus, 1669

Rodrigo de Arriaga (Logroño, 17 January 1592 – Prague, Bohemia, 7 June 1667) was a Spanish philosopher, theologian and Jesuit.[1]


Born in Logroño, he joined the Society of Jesus in 1606 when he was 14 years old.[2][dead link] When Prague was conquered by the imperial troops in 1620, he moved there, playing a key role in securing the Jesuit control over Bohemian schools and universities.

From 1624 he taught philosophy in Valladolid and theology in Prague.[3] He was chancellor at Charles University from 1642 to 1653 and become prefect at Collegio Clementino in 1654.[4]
