The Institute will virtually host the first meeting of a working group of international scholars (historians, legal historians and book historians) working on a volume dedicated to ‘Legal Books and Beyond in the Iberian Worlds. Normative Knowledge Production in the Age of the Printing Press’. The aim will be to observe from different perspectives the case of a specific pragmatic book written by an emblematic and extraordinary author: the Manual de Confessores by Martín de Azpilcueta (1492-1586).
By ‘bridging the gaps’ between the fields of book history and legal history, the team will try to assess if and how the analysis of the global production, circulation and consumption of this pragmatic book can contribute to the understanding of the early modern normative knowledge production in the Iberian worlds.
