CHARLES V: WAR AND PEACE ON BOTH SIDES OF THE ATLANTIC
From the 4th to the 6th of July 2018, at the Royal Monastery of Yuste
The main aim of this course is to analyse the conflicts that took place on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean during the period of Charles V, the perception that their actors had of them and the consequences they had on the politics of the time.
The main subject focuses on the binomial WAR-PEACE during the reign of Charles V. The course is structured in three great blocks:
- War and peace in the European framework, paying special attention to the conflict with other reigns and with the Turks.
- Violence and peace in the conquest on new lands on the other side of the Atlantic. The problem of the “just war”.
- Renaissance humanism in the face of that reality: literature, art, theology, etc.
