César, Cornelio Adrián, ca. 1574-ca. 1633
Cornelio (Cornieles) Adrián César was from Holland. He might have been an apprentice in one of Christopher Plantin’s print shops. He came to New Spain to work as a typesetter in the printing press of María de Sansoric and Pedro Ocharte. His name appears twice in 1594-1597.
In 1601, the Inquisition accused him of being a Lutheran after expressing Lutheran opinions in public. The Inquisition subsequently imprisoned César for a year in its jail and two more in the Franciscan convent of Tlatelolco, where he worked at the convent’s press. After being freed, he married Luisa Robles in 1604 and worked as a typesetter for Diego López Dávalos. César died in 1633.
