Portuguese missionary. Azevedo became a Jesuit in 1548 and subsequently served as rector of religious colleges in Lisbon and Braga, Portugal. In 1566 he journeyed to Brazil to serve the Jesuit missions there. While on a trip to Europe to recruit new missionaries, he and 39 other Jesuits were attacked by Huguenot privateers, who brutally slaughtered them.
