Chapter Summary

This chapter delves into the decade preceding our Irishman's travel to the Eternal City. This enables us to field several stakes, protagonists, and the networks supporting them before turning to the analysis of academic policy and interests in the archducal period (1598-1621). It deploys two "axes of identification" that informed many of the Louvain schemes in the following decades. And it broadens the scope somewhat, as other affairs - more precisely, the row with the Jesuits in the 1590s over the order's rights to teach philosophy and theology - effectively stalled academic lobbying in Brussels and in Rome for confirmation of the university's privileges until 1598. Peter Lombard was not the first Louvain academic, let alone the first doctor in Divinity, who travelled to the Eternal City.

Keywords: academic policy; archducal period; Eternal City; Jesuits; Louvain schemes; Peter Lombard
