Lucas, bishop of Tuy from 1239 until 1249, is chiefly known as the author of the Chronicon mundi, his great contribution to medieval history. But he also wrote De miraculis sancti Isidori, a work of hagiography, and in the decade of 1230-1240 while still a deacon, an antiheretical treatise, De altera uita.

De altera uita was first published by Mariana in 1612 as De altera uita fideique controuersiis aduersus Albigensium errores libri III: the only edition of the work until now. The author of this new edition, Dr. Falque, was also responsible for the critical edition of the Chronicon mundi published by Corpus Christianorum in 2003 (CC CM, 74).
Review
"Como era de esperar, habida cuenta de sus anteriores trabajos, la edición de Emma Falque es una edición crítica modélica, que presenta, además de un aparato crítico positivo, un aparato de citas bíblicas y otro de fuentes. Por último, debemos destacar los utilísimos índices de citas bíblicas, de fuentes, de nombres y de lugares que figuran al final del libro. Aprovechamos, por tanto, para felicitar a la filóloga sevillana y animarla a seguir con su tan valiosa labor editora." (Mercè Puig Rodríguez-Escalona, in: Anuario de Estudios Medievales, 42/2, julio-diciembre 2012, p. 893-894)
