The years of the seventeenth century has traditionally been regarded as one of the most important landmarks of European history. The spanish historiography tell us that these years were

dominated by absence of science and delayed in the running of the European Thought, self-enclosed. For a variety of reasons, it history has been written, for the most part, according to

value that the historians have given to it. Sometimes, they paid attention to the Art in order to look at the Baroque. Others times, political reasons were a heavy element that they got to explain

the rest of these times.

Nowadays, a variety of positions, and a lot of changing perspectives are making that a new narrative discourse bring to light, emerging strongly. May be that in the future, historians of the

History will say that today a continous confluence of disciplines applied to the seventeenth century, with minds working together, thinking like a team, produced a lot of ideas which gave a

definitive appearance to this century.

In this International Conference, recognized authorities of several areas of historical knowledge will be together talking about some aspects of this period. Making good use of this circumstance,

and starting from Juan Vincencio of Lastanosa, the Baroque will be analized again.

This international conference aims to move the historiography of the seventeenth century and to encourage a more balanced assessment of Spain’s role in the history of early modern Europe.

More than that, the conference aims to test and challenge current interpretations of the seventeenth century Spain. Bearing in mind the topics of the Event and the high-qualified speakers,

we are sure that our objectives will become reality.
