In the second half of the Seventeenth century a harsh controversy arose between Jesuits and Dominicans in the Viceroyalties of Peru and Nuevo Reino de Granada. The struggle concerned the possibility for the Jesuit colleges of Quito and Santa Fe de Bogotá to confer academic degrees not only in Philosophy and Theology but also in Canon law, precondition to be proclaimed as a University. The controversy arrived in Rome and was managed by the “Vescovi e Regolari” Congregation. As a mediator the Roman Curia chose an important Franciscan Italian theologian, Lorenzo Brancati di Lauria. The seminar will tackle the doctrinal and political implications of an “American controversy” in which Rome was asked to pronounce its judgement.

Der Vortrag wird auf Englisch gehalten.
