Die Schule von Salamanca

Eine digitale Quellensammlung und ein Wörterbuch ihrer juristisch-politischen Sprache

Digital Edition:

The School of Salamanca or “Spanish late scholasticism” of the 16th and early 17th centuries is one of the most influential epochs of early modern European thought because of its importance for jurisprudence and political philosophy. The project has two objectives: Firstly, to digitally record and present the central texts of the “School of Salamanca” in an overall corpus that follows uniform edition guidelines and is systematically searchable. Secondly, a dictionary of their legal, political and philosophical terms is to be created on the basis of these sources. Both will provide a new basis for research on late scholasticism, since neither a corresponding source collection nor a historical-semantic special dictionary is yet available.
