LOEWE Junior Research Group “Canon Law, Moral Theology and Conflict Resolution in the Early Modern Period”

completed

The LOEWE Junior Research Group “Canon Law, Moral Theology and Conflict Resolution in the Early Modern Period” investigated the role played by the Catholic Church in the settlement of disputes (ca. 1450-1650). An international team of researchers, each from a different disciplinary background, investigated the impact of ecclesiastical institutions, canon lawyers and theologians on the resolution of conflicts in the age of the Reformations. The Junior Research Group contributed to the larger goal of the LOEWE-Project, i.e. furthering the interdisciplinary study of judicial and extra-judicial models of conflict resolution, by concentrating on a watershed period in the history of a judicial actor of paramount importance in the history of the Western legal tradition, namely the Catholic Church.
