a Spanish Jesuit theologian and ascetic writer. A few years after his death, the Sacred Congregation of Rites admitted the cause of his beatification and canonization. Puente was born in Valladolid. Having entered the Society of Jesus, he studied under Francisco Suarez, and professed philosophy at Salamanca. He was forced by bad health to retire from duties, and took up writing. Ordained priest in 1580, he became the spiritual director of Marina de Escobar. In 1599 he devoted himself to the care of the plague-stricken in Villagarcia. He died in Valladolid.
