Albert Pighi

c.1490-1542. Roman Catholic apologist. Born in Kampen, the Netherlands, he graduated from Louvain in 1509 and lived in Paris until he went to Rome in 1522. He is remembered as an opponent of Martin Bucer* and a defender of papal infallibility. In 1538 appeared his Hierarchiae ecclesiasticae assertio; three years later came the Controversarium quibus nunc exagitatur Christi fides... which was widely used to answer the Protestant challenge. A posthumous work (1543), Apologia A. Pighii...adversus M. Bucer calumnias..., was used by Richard Smith in 1550 to attack Peter Martyr* and Bucer, and Pighi was often cited at the Council of Trent.* Peter Martyr chose to answer Pighi in his 1551 Romans lectures at Oxford and his 1558 printed commentary.
