|Abstract||This work examines the role of royal confessors as political counsellors in seventeenth-century Spain and France, and how, against the backdrop of the momentous intellectual, theological, and political shifts that marked this period, questions of conscience became a major argument in the hegemonic struggle between the two competing Catholic powers.--Publishers description.|
