Inhaltsangabe: In an era of confessional conflict, the conscience served as a powerful mediator between God and man, directing and judging moral actions. This work aims to convey the breadth of the conscience's jurisdiction, analyzing its impact upon a variety of important aspects of early modern society: political allegiance; the genre of "advice to princes"; religious conformity; slavery; the regulation of sexual behavior; gender roles; and the intellectual methods of scientists.
