One of the major exponents of the School of Salamanca and a foundational figure of early modern moral theology was Melchior Cano. He held two solemn readings (›relectiones‹) on the sacraments in general and on penance in particular that are of great importance for the history of normative thinking. In the edition of the ›relectiones‹ complied by Belda Plans the text incorporates significant variations of the edition of Ingolstadt of 1580. Moreover, the editor has provided the first translation of the text into contemporary Spanish, a preliminary essay and a general introduction. This work is an original historiographical contribution, which addresses a significant gap in the research and represents an indispensable work for historians of humanistic areas of study (law, philosophy, theology).
