The German theologian Konrad Summenhart (c.1450-1502) studied in Paris and taught in Tübingen. Especially with his opus magnum “De contractibus licitis atque illicitis” he became an important reference author of the school of Salamanca, whose arguments were taken up and critically discussed by Francisco de Vitorias and others.

Joost Possemiers is Ph.D. student at the university of Leuwen and presents a part of his ongoing research project.

The Colloquium will be held in English.
