"Lu Ann Homza presents profound nuances in Spanish intellectual and religious history. Through analyses of Inquisition trials, biblical translations, treatises on witchcraft, and tracts on the episcopate and penance, Homza illuminates the intellectual autonomy and energy of Spain's ecclesiastics." "Charting the ways in which Spanish priests and friars read and cited their sources and designed the clerical and secular estates, Homza reveals surprising movements between humanism and scholasticism. As they regarded the Bible, Church history, or the pastoral care of souls, Spanish ecclesiastics displayed more flexibility and creativity than historians previously imagined."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
