The essay explores some critical and historiographical key questions about the relationship between Rome and theology in the period between the convening of the Council of Trent and the late seventeenth century. Always evaluated by historians as the most emblematic and pure expression of the cultural domination that the Church of the Counter Reformation was able to impose on all of Europe in the aftermath of Trent, the theological culture of that period was far from being monolithic, as is clearly shown in the numerous doctrinal disputes and clashes between opposing theological schools that intensified around the end of the sixteenth century. The fundamental question of «Roman theology» at a crucial moment in the process of building a fully Roman Catholicism remains open to analysis. The issue of Rome as the papal city, Rome as the headquarters of major educational institutions and congregations of cardinals called to define orthodoxy, remains a poorly investigated subject from the particular point of view of intellectual sociability in a purely theological field.

Abstract

The essay explores some critical and historiographical key questions about the relationship between Rome and theology in the period between the convening of the Council of Trent and the late seventeenth century. Always evaluated by historians as the most emblematic and pure expression of the cultural domination that the Church of the Counter Reformation was able to impose on all of Europe in the aftermath of Trent, the theological culture of that period was far from being monolithic, as is clearly shown in the numerous doctrinal disputes and clashes between opposing theological schools that intensified around the end of the sixteenth century. The fundamental question of «Roman theology» at a crucial moment in the process of building a fully Roman Catholicism remains open to analysis. The issue of Rome as the papal city, Rome as the headquarters of major educational institutions and congregations of cardinals called to define orthodoxy, remains a poorly investigated subject from the particular point of view of intellectual sociability in a purely theological field.
