The Spanish scholasticism and his theory of justice: The case of Luis de Leon

Research output: Contribution to journalScientific reviewpeer-review

Abstract

In this paper, the author aims to review the doctrine of justice of Luis de León, a major writer on Spanish thought. Since its inception, with the teaching of Francisco de Vitoria, the Spanish School of natural law led the way in the development of theology and philosophy in the Thomist tradition. In the construction of this new philosophy of justice, the ideas of Leon have been particularly relevant. From literature and mysticism, his theology of the law has become one of the pillars of the history of law.
