Chapter Summary

How can one explain the contrast between a century-long oblivion, which in many cases extends to the present day, and the popularity he enjoyed in his own day? This chapter focuses on one of them, proposing a general overview, a sort of geographical map of the vast propagation of Juan Luis Vives's works in print. It approaches the vast extent of the diffusion of his works, giving an account of the individual fortune of each of his writings. The chapter makes reference to the decline in the diffusion of his works in print in almost all of Europe beginning in the last third of the sixteenth century, and explains such a fall in popularity in relation to the religious and political upheavals that took place as a result of the Reformation.

Keywords: Europe; Juan Luis Vives; Oblivion; reformation; sixteenth century
