El sistema en movimiento: el derecho canónico, la justicia y la reforma de las costumbres

In this seminar series, Professor Jorge E. Traslosheros (Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México) will explore the judicial history of the Roman Catholic Church in viceregal Spanish America, with an emphasis on New Spain. This session will address the judicial system in motion, focusing on the relationship among canon law, the fora of justice and the reform of customs.
