Chapter Summary

This chapter presents the economic, scientific and theological contexts of the sixteenth century necessary to understand the work of Luis de Molina. It briefly presents his life, and then discusses the general historical tendencies. According to Domenico Sella, "the most important event in the economic history of modern Europe is the discovery and colonization of the New World". The chapter sketches some elements of what has been called the Scientific Revolution in as much as they affect our research. According to Vereecke, "Moral Theology in the sixteenth century was Spanish". Molina's most famous book is the Concordia. The chapter shows how Molina's position on grace and free will influenced his fundamental moral theology. It sets out now the content of the Concordia in as much as it influences the approach to moral theology.
