One of the great moments in the history of Catholic theology was the Salamancan resurgence of scholasticism in the 16th c. The thinkers of that city traced the path to a renewal of theology against the doctrines of the reformers, and particularly against the accusations of Martin Luther. The present work sets out to verify exactly how two grand Spanish scholastic theologians, Juan de la Peña and Mancio de Corpus Christi, responded to Luther's teachings on one of the points most discussed over the course of the scholastic Renaissance: the nature of human laws and the extension of the normative powers of human authorities.
