The woman and her role in the time of Emperor Charles V are the main ingredient of a course that the European and Ibero-American Academy of Yuste Foundation will give at the Royal Monastery of Yuste between July 17th and 19th. A course that will address their contribution to political decision making. All this with an integrating approach and underlining the role of co-responsibility of women in different levels: political, legislative, religious, cultural and social.
As for more details related to the content of the course, the role of women in Renaissance Europe of the sixteenth century and in the New World will be analyzed. It will also analyze the role of the women who lived in the circle of the Hapsburg Court, in what way did they exercise political power; and above all, in what way did the spirituality of the time, marked by the reformist movements, influence them.
Finally, the course will address the role of women in the field of culture, both religious and literary, with special attention to those spaces of marginality to which women were relegated in the sixteenth century.
