The reconstruction of Juan de santo Tomás’ work tackles the topic of confession as the place of the formation of conscience in the believer and the transmission of political and religious advice in the particular case where the penitent is at the same time a believer and the sovereign of a state. The king’s «state sins» and the confessor’s advice are defined by the languages of politics and theology.
