Palafox (1600-1659) was an important political and religious figure in Mexico including holding positions such as Viceroy of New Spain and Bishop of Puebla, but a major dispute with the Jesuits led to his recall from Mexico and placement in the boondocks of Spain, as a priest in Osma in Old Castile.
