BiographyEdit

Luis Suárez was born in Toledo, Spain.[7] In 1539, he was appointed during the papacy of Pope Paul III as Auxiliary Bishop of Toledo and consecrated bishop by Cardinal Juan Pardo de Tavera, Archbishop of Toledo.[6] On 1 October 1554, he was appointed,[3][7] with the recommendation of Cardinal Pardo de Tavera,[6] during the papacy of Pope Julius III as Bishop of Dragonara.[7][3] It is uncertain how long he served although he is named as the diocese's last bishop.[1][7] The diocese was suppressed in 1580.[5] Some sources state that he was from Burgos, where he became Mercedarian friar, and that he was promoted to the Diocese of Alghero on Sardinia, where he died.[6] While bishop, he was the principal co-consecrator of Francisco Delgado López, Bishop of Lugo (1562).[3]
