Carranza, Bartolomé de

▪ Spanish theologian
also called  Bartolomé De Miranda  
born 1503, Miranda de Arga, Spain
died May 2, 1576, Rome, Papal States [Italy]
 Dominican theologian and archbishop of Toledo who was imprisoned for nearly 17 years by the Spanish Inquisition.

      Carranza entered the Dominican convent of Benalaque near Guadalajara, Spain, and had a brilliant scholastic career, holding responsible positions in his order. As the Holy Roman emperor Charles V's envoy, he took an active part (1545–47) in the Council of Trent.

      In 1546 Carranza published his Summa conciliorum (“Summary of the Council Meetings”) and his Quattuor controversiae (“Four Controversies”). The latter work, an important study of the authority within the Roman Catholic church of tradition, Scripture, the pope, and the councils, forestalled the work of the Dominican theologian Melchor Cano, who accused Carranza of Lutheran opinions. In 1554–57 Carranza was in England as adviser to King Philip II of Spain at the king's marriage to Queen Mary I of England. In 1557 Philip named him archbishop of Toledo and primate of Spain. His Comentarios sobre el catechismo christiano (1558;“Commentaries on the Christian Catechism”) brought about renewed accusations of Lutheranism. Carranza was arrested by the Inquisition (Aug. 22, 1559) and accused of urging Bible reading by laypersons and advocating the writing of theology in the vernacular. Though the Council of Trent in 1563 declared his work sound, Philip and the Inquisition would not yield, presumably for political reasons. Pope Pius V called Carranza to Rome in 1567, but he was not acquitted until 1576, when he was sent to the Dominican priory of the Minerva, where he died 18 days later.
