The aim of this article, based on the works Tratado de la Justicia y el Derecho of Domingo de Soto, Arte legal para el estudio de la Iurisprudencia of Francisco Bermudez de Pedraza and Perfecto confessor y cura de almas of Juan Machado de Chaves, published between the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, is to analyze the elements of Catholic doctrine which produced a formative knowledge of the judges' conscience, and to propose, based on Koselleck's concept of Bildung, that the relationship between Moral theology and Law was crucial to justice administration in Spanish America.
