History:

Spanish Hellenist and humanist. Son of Ruy López of Toledo, treasurer of the Catholic Monarchs, Hernán was appointed commander of the Order of Santiago at a young age. He traveled through Italy during his youth, studying Latin and Greek in Bologna. Being Granada where he took up residence from 1496, and working there as the private tutor of the Count of Tendilla's children, the governor of the Kingdom of Granada, he published his most discussed edition of Laberinto de Fortuna, by Juan de Mena. Sent to Alcalá by the Cardinal Cisneros as a lecturer at the University in 1513, he worked on the Complutensian Polyglot Bible. Supporter of the comuneros, Hernán left the University of Alcalá. In 1524 he became the head of department in Greek at the University of Salamanca, and in 1527, in Rhetoric at the same University, where he stayed until his retirement in 1548. During this period of time, Hernán published some relevant critical studies about Seneca, Pomponius Mela and Pliny, as well as writing his paremiological dictionary which would be published posthumously. Hernán is popular due to his erudition. Finally, he died in Salamanca in 1553.
