Censorship and Dissent
Martín Baños


Pedro Martín Baños holds a PhD in Hispanic Philology from the University of Deusto (Bilbao), where he defended and published his thesis El arte epistolar en el Renacimiento europeo, 1400-1600 (2005). As a high school teacher, he has taken part in numerous research projects in various fields of study, with a special focus on the 15th and 16th centuries and the intersection of Latin culture and Romance letters. A specialist in Antonio de Nebrija, he has devoted several books and articles to the life and work of the Spanish humanist (for example, La pasión de saber. Vida de Antonio de Nebrija, 2019), and is responsible for the website Corpus nebrissense. Repertorio de textos y estudios nebrisenses. He is currently completing a complete bibliography of Nebrija’s editions and a critical edition and translation of the Tertia quinquagena. His edition of the Letras de Fernando de Pulgar, prepared for the Biblioteca Clásica de la RAE, will be published shortly. In recent years, he has also been interested in the study of conversos, religious dissent and censorship in the 15th and 16th centuries. He is preparing a book with unpublished documentation on the Durango heresy.
