ABAD, or ABADIANO, Diego Jose, Mexican poet, born near Jiquilpan, between Michoacan and Guadalajara, 1 July, 1727; died in Italy, 30 September, 1779. He became a Jesuit in early youth, and afterward taught philosophy and civil and canon law in Zacatecas and the City of Mexico. When forty years old, and while rector of the College of Queretaro, he began the study of medicine, in the practice of which he was successful. Then he went to Italy and published a volume of Latin poetry, under the title of "Heroica Dec carmina," to which he owes his greatest fame. Among other works he wrote descriptions of the principal rivers of the world in a book called "Geografia hidraulica." Several editions of the "Heroica Deo carmina" were published, in Madrid (1769), Venice (1774), Ferrara (1776), and Cecina (1780).
