Resumen

All rights reserved. The article analyzes the presence of the notion of “state of nature” in 16th century Spanish theologians and jurists, showing the similarities and differences among four topics that preceded the formation of that concept: the state of original innocence, the consequences of original sin for human nature, the hypothesis regarding a contract that legitimizes political authority, and the theological hypothesis of pure nature. On the basis of this analysis, the paper goes on to propose some criteria to define the state of nature.
