New publication by Dr Nicole Reinhardt
(13 October 2016)
We would like to congratulate Dr Nicole Reinhardt on the release of her new book 'Voices of Conscience'.
Voices of Conscience analyzes how the link between politics and conscience was articulated and shaped throughout the seventeenth century by confessors who acted as counsellors to monarchs. Against the backdrop of the momentous intellectual, theological, and political shifts that marked this period, the study examines comparatively how the ethical challenges of political action were confronted in Spain and France and how questions of conscience became a major argument in the hegemonic struggle between the two competing Catholic powers.
