CfP: The Visibility of Knowledge: Spanish Culture at the Council of Trent

Friday, April 21, 2017   (0 Comments)

PAMLA 2017 Conference CFP

Chaminade University of Honolulu, November 10–12.

The council of Trent marked a milestone for Spanish diplomats and Churchmen. What has been often perceived as a change of paradigm in the theological and political protocols, was also a site for the creation of knowledge. As Spanish diplomats and churchmen gathered at Trent with their pairs from all across the continent, medical, literary and philosophical ideas traveled hundreds of miles across borders and seas — in the form of adaptations from antiquity, illustrated codices from the New World or revolutionary texts. This panel aims at examining the ways in which the council fostered early modern science and the liberal arts.

Deadline for submissions: 21 May.
