He studied at the University of Huesca, obtained a bachelor's degree in law in 1602 and a degree in 1603. In 1612 he published his first legal work in Mallorca. In January 1626 he had been appointed Archdeacon of the Canons of the Cathedral of Barcelona.[3] During the wars with France he fled his cathedral during a riot of the local population. The governor capitulated and the bishop Duran was implicated.[4]
