Chapter Summary

This chapter develops an argument on chronological lines. The argument consists of four parts. First, the systematic involvement of princely mediation from 1612 onwards provides for a poor explanation for the reversal of the academics' fortunes in the Roman Question. Second, the analysis of the different legal solutions discussed in the years preceding Regimini reveals that the constitutional turn in academic policy from 1612 onwards cannot be considered a purely discursive strategy in tune with the legalistic political culture of the South Netherlands. And, third, the political culture itself had to be kept functioning at great cost and by all means, which disqualifies it as an unproblematic prime mover of academic success in 1616. The fourth argument is that academics were not just under the spell of power but also sought, under the guise of "solita pietà, e osservanza," to translate the papacy's ecclesiological programmes into academic programmes.
