The PROGRAMA INTER-DISCIPLINAR DE ESTUDIOS SOBRE PENSAMIENTO VIRREINAL PERUANO was created at the Universidad de Piura as part of the PROGRAMA INTERNACIONAL DE RESCATE DEL PENSAMIENTO COLONIAL IBEROAMERICANO (see COLEGIOS Vol. 1, Num. 2, 1992). The PROGRAMA brings together scholars from a variety of disciplines to study the literature, history, philosophy and theology, etc., of the viceregal period in Peru. Presently, study is underway concerning the following subjects: (a) Sermon collections, paintings and other nonconventional means of conversion in the first evangelization (16th century); (b) the life, work, and thought of the Bishop of Trujillo, Peru, Martinez Companon (18th century); (c) el escarmiento and el desengan~o as literary attitudes in the Peruvian Barroque of the 18th Century.

As part of project (b), there were two international conferences in 1989 and 1990. The papers from the first have been published in a volume entitled VIDA Y OBRA DEL OBISPO MARTINEZ COMPANON.
