Abstract

In the first half of the Seventeenth century the Spanish Monarchy employed massive diplomatic energies towards the Holy See in favour of the dogmatic definition of the Immaculate Conception of the Virgin. In particular, starting from the pontificates of Urban VIII and Innocent X, the article analyses the path that led to the emanation of the Papal bull "Sollicitudo omnium Ecclesiarum" (1661, under Alexander VII). In the two decades here examined it appears clear both the ductility of the indications that Philip IV gave to his extraordinary ambassadors, and the importance of the political and ecclesiological implications of the arguments used by the Habsburg Monarchy in favour of the proclamation of the dogma: the concept of orthodoxy, the role of the general council, the uniformity of liturgy, cults and devotions within the catholicity, the possibilities of intervention of the secular powers in matters of doctrine.
En la primera mitad del siglo XVII la Monarquía española diseñó un masivo esfuerzo diplomático con respecto a la Santa Sede en favor de la definición del dogma de la Inmaculada Concepción de la Virgen. El presente artículo analiza, en particular, el recorrido que, a partir de los pontificados de Urbano VIII e Inocencio X, llevó a la promulgación de la bula “Sollicitudo omnium ecclesiarum” de 1661, ya en época de Alexandro VII Chigi. En los dos decenios examinados se hizo evidente, de un lado, la ductilidad de las indicaciones que Felipe IV proporcionaba a sus embajadores extradordinarios; y del otro, la importancia de las implicaciones de naturaleza política y eclesiológica de los argumentos utilizados por los Austrias en favor de la proclamación del dogma: el concepto de ortodoxia; el papel del Concilio general; la uniformidad de la liturgia, de los cultos y de las devociones desarrolladas en el seno de la catolicidad; o las posibilidades de intervención de los poderes seculares en las cuestiones doctrinales.
