Resum

This article explores the treatment of Lutheranism in three major humanist colloquia written during the 1520s: Erasmus's Inquisition into Faith (1524), Alfonso de Valdés' Diálogo sobre las Cosas Acaecidas en Roma (1527) and Thomas More's Dialogue Concerning Heresies (1529). The discussion shows how each of the dialogues, taken in its own historical circumstances, registers the increasing difficulty of incorporating the new Lutheran voices. A contextualised comparison suggests that the very genre seems, in this decade, to move towards a greater heteroglossia (to put it in Bakhtinian terms) but that this movement is made only in order to achieve, in the end, a stronger closure, and to reinforce the monological basis of the Catholic discourse. © 2003 Oxford University Press.
