GOMEZ DE SOSA (SOSSA), ISAAC:

Latin poet ("famoso poeta Latino," according to De Barrios); son of Abraham Gomez do Sosa. He was arbiter at the academy of poetry founded by Don Manuel de Belmonte in 1677. Gomez wrote the Latin epitaph on his father's tomb, a Latin poem in honor of Jacob Judah Leon's "Las Alabanças de Santitad," and two other poems in honor of a work by Joseph Penço de la Vega. He also caused a translation to be made of the work "Divinidad de la Ley."
