a classical scholar, translator, author, and Protestant apologist of Spanish origin. Following an interview with the Emperor Charles V, he was arrested by order of the Emperor's confessor, Pedro de Soto. Enzinas escaped from the Vrunte prison in Brussels in February 1545. He made his way back to Wittenberg and wrote an account of his adventures, titled De statu Belgico et religione Hispanica. It is better known as his Mémoires. The next year in Basel, he edited and published an account of the murder of his friend and fellow Protestant Juan Díaz, the Historia vera, which became a best seller in the overheated religious atmosphere of the day.
