"Medieval and Early Modern Political Theology. Historical and Theoretical Perspectives" proposes a field of research in which, for a correct understanding of juridical or political concepts, institutions, symbols and images with their vast significance in historical contexts, we should establish analogies between the political and juridical sphere and the religious one. This idea includes three main aspects: a. that the metaphysical image of the world forged by an epoch has the same structure as the form of its political structure; b. that there are multifarious transferences of meanings between the theological and religious sphere as well as the political and institutional, in both senses; c. this kind of transferences allows us to analyze and interpret the use of the religion in order to legitimate politics in some historical experiences and viceversa. This series seeks to develop this methodological hypothesis along different historical epochs and diverse theoretical approaches taking into account the perspectives from different disciplines.
