  • Represents one of the few modern studies exploring developments in scholastic and Renaissance notions of conscience
  • Synthesizes literary, theological and historical approaches
  • Presents case studies from England and the Hispanic World that reveal shared traditions, strategies, and conclusions regarding moral uncertainty
  • Sheds new light on the crises of conscience of ordinary people, as well as prominent individuals such as Thomas More
  • Offers new research on the ways practical theologians in England, Spain, and France participated in political debate and interacted with secular counsellors and princes

Keywords: Hispanic world, early modern world, medieval discourses, humanist traditions
