Among the historians of the School of Salamanca, Juan Belda Plans is one of the most renowned scholars whose work has again and again set intellectual benchmarks in the field, recently with his commented translation of Melchor Cano’s “De locis theologicis“, one of the most important texts of the Early Modern Scholasticism. We are especially happy that he joins us for an extraordinary session at our project’s colloquium to draw a historiographical balance and shine a light on new research perspectives regarding the School of Salamanca.
The presentation will be held in Spanish.
Place: Max Planck Institute for European Legal History
Room: Lecture hall of the MPIER
At this June meeting of the Salamanca colloquium, José Luis Egío and Pedro Henrique Ribeiro will present their research on “Scandalum und Menschenrechte“ (“Scandalum and Human Rights“). The presentation will be held in German.
José Luis Egío studied philosophy and European law in Murcia, Padua, Salamanca, and Geneva. He holds a doctorate in philosophy (university of Murcia) and is currently engaged in a second PhD project with the Institute of Historical Research, Department of Philosophy and Letters, National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM). He is a researcher in the Academy project „The School of Salamanca“ and affiliate researcher at the Max Planck Institute for European Legal History.
Pedro Henrique Ribeiro studied social sciences at the university of Sao Paulo (USP) and law at the Catholic University Sao Paulo (PUC-SP). He is a DAAD fellow and currently as a PhD student at the Institute for Public Law at Frankfurt’s Goethe University.
In the next five months, we organize the Research Colloquium of the Max Planck Institute of European Legal History in Frankfurt a.M. Our monthly meetings will focus on pivotal topics of the juridical, political, and philosophical debates, approaching them from different disciplinary backgrounds and texts, asking for Salmantine characteristics and thus contributing to the priotarisation of concepts and topics in the future dictionary of the School of Salamanca’s juridical-political language.
Working languages of the colloquium will be English and Spanisch.
The SIEPM (Société Internationale pour l’Étude de la Philosophie Médiévale) was founded in 1958, and every five years it holds a large conference for philosophers and other scholars to discuss medieval and early modern philosophy. This year’s XIV International Congress was the first to be held at a South American university, the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio Grande del Sul in Porto Alegre, Brazil. The three organizers Dr. Roberto Hofmeister Pich, Prof. Dr. Alfredo Santiago Culleton and Dr. Alfredo Carlos Storck focused on Spanish and Portuguese second scholasticism as the vessel carrying European theology and philosophy into the Americas and invited the participants to address many topics that the Salamancan jurists and theologians treated intensively in their relectiones, commentaries and treatises.
