(Michael; 1628 [some say ca. 1640]ca. 1696). Quietist; b. Muniesa, near Saragossa, Sp.; educ. Valencia, Sp.; to Rome 1663; friend of many prelates, including future Innocent* XI. Held that perfection consisted in union with and transformation into God; in this state external observances are a hindrance and means of grace unnecessary. Wrote Guida spirituale (tr. into Lat. by A. H. Francke,* into Ger. by G. Arnold*). See also Quietism.
