Freddy Dominguez (B.A., Brown University 2004; M.A./PhD, Princeton University 2011)is a historian of Early Modern Europe, with a focus on political culture, religion, and book history. His current research deals with the writings of English Catholic exiles working and living in Spain, Italy, France, and the Netherlands at the end of the sixteenth century. Other projects include studies on the writings of Jesuit Pedro de Ribadeneyra, sixteenth century (English) Catholic critiques of Catholic Reform, the uses of popular print by the Spanish Habsburgs, the involvement of “saintly” women in early modern politics, and Italian political thought during the Renaissance. He has taught courses on Renaissance and Reformation Europe, Early Modern Europe, Tudor-Stuart England, Machiavelli’s Prince, and the English Civil War. He is currently developing courses on Golden Age Spain and religious warfare across the centuries.
Apart from several articles, Dominguez is currently working on three major projects. One has to do with English Catholic polemics at the end of the sixteenth century, the other has to do with the life and times of a Portuguese mystic during the same time, and the third is a synthetic study of Machiavelli's Prince.
