His Pia desideria, a spiritual emblem book published in Antwerp in 1624,[1] was “the most popular religious emblem book of the seventeenth century”.[2] It went through 42 Latin editions and was widely translated up to the 18th century.[3]

Life[edit]

Herman Hugo was born in Brussels. He studied philosophy and theology at the University of Louvain. He died of plague on 11 September 1629 at Rheinsberg.[4]
