Footprints of Ramon Llull’s Thought in Atlantic Processes of Evangelization: Canary Islands, Congo, Iberian Peninsula, and La Española (15th-16th Centuries)

Project Details


The medieval philosopher Ramon Llull (1232–1316) elaborated a method to convert believers of other monotheistic religions and gentiles. His approach significantly affected the Castilian and Portuguese clergy during the 15th and 16th centuries and was adapted to provide ideological legitimation to the conquest of new lands in the Canary Islands, Congo, the Iberian Peninsula and the Caribbean. However, modern research deals exclusively with Llull’s work and thought, neglecting his contribution to later evangelisation processes. Funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme, the EVANGELION project will describe the network of missionaries in close contact with royal power, their works and their relationships, produce critical editions of some of the unpublished Llullist works and explore Catholic globalisation behind the activities of this network of Llullian missionaries.
