With his extensive and complex major work De locis theologicis, Melchor Cano laid the foundations for modern dogmatics in theology. A German translation of this work was carried out between 2006 to 2014 within the context of the DFG project 'Melchior Cano De locis theologicis. Critical Edition of the Latin Text and German Translation' by Elmar Klinger, Thomas Franz and Boris Hogenmüller. Subsequently, Hogenmüller edited and translated the French Dominican François-Jacques-Hyacinthe Serry's Melchiori Cani Vindicationes ( published in 1714) in which he defended Cano and the Loci against various theological-literary attacks. In the colloquium, Boris Hogenmüller will talk about Cano, his work and its reception in the early modern period and thereby provide insights into the highly intense theological-scientific discussions of the 16th and 17th centuries.
The colloquium will be held in English.
