Regarding Federico Escobedo Tinoco. Federico Escobedo Tinoco (1874-1949) was a priest, scholar, writer and opponent of the Reform Laws. Federico made his first studies in his hometown at the Colegio de la Purísima Concepción. Being supported by the parish priest Tirso Rafael Córdoba, he moved to Puebla to enter the Palafoxiano Seminary where he studied Humanities and Latin. In 1889 he entered the Society of Jesus in the Novitiate College of San Simón de Michoacán. In 1894 he traveled to Spain to study Philosophy in Oña, a town in the province of Burgos. He returned to Mexico and taught at the San Simón Novitiate College, the Colegio de San Juan Nepomuceno de Saltillo and the Colegio de Mascarones in Mexico City. In 1899, for family reasons, he resigned from the Society of Jesus and was ordained a priest. From 1900 to 1914 he taught at the Palafoxian Seminary and, in parallel, since 1908, at the Catholic University of Puebla. He devoted himself to the translation and teaching of classical literature in the Latin language. Due to his work, the Academy of Arcadia in Rome granted him a title under the pseudonym Tamiro Miceneo. In 1914, during the development of the events of the Mexican Revolution, he was appointed a corresponding member of the Mexican Academy of Language, at the same time he took charge -provisionally- of the archdiocese of Puebla. On October 4, 1918, he was appointed a corresponding member of the Royal Spanish Academy. In 1921 he was appointed pastor of Teziutlan, where he dedicated himself to the translation of Latin into the Spanish language of Rafael Landívar's Rusticatio mexicana, the work was published in 1925 by the Ministry of Public Education. In 1927, during the events of the Cristero War, he was imprisoned in the garrison of Mexico City. Days later, he was able to return to his parish, and years later, he was appointed canon of Puebla. He came to belong to the literary group Bohemia Poblana being one of its most distinguished members, the group gathered a large part of the Puebla intelligentsia. After his death the group promoted the dedication of a park and a bust in his name located on Calle 16 September and Calle 21 Oriente of the city of Puebla. In 1940, he was appointed corresponding member of the Colombian Academy of the Language. He wrote more than fifty titles, including books, pamphlets and other compositions; among them are Carmina Latina, Odes Breves and Madrigales Marianos. He died on November 13, 1949 in the city of Puebla. Translated and adapted from Wikipedia in Spanish
