Abstract

Spanish Abstract: Esta voz estudia las bases jurídicas sobre las cuales los eclesiásticos hispanoamericanos pudieron ejercer su capacidad para renunciar a un beneficio o ser objeto del traslado de un obispado o una parroquia hacia otro. Los derechos y obligaciones espirituales y jurisdiccionales de los clérigos para gozar de un beneficio estaban regulados por la legislación canónica y civil indiana, a lo cual se añade la base teológica que da sentido a la relación entre el sujeto y el beneficio. Los dos actos, renuncia y traslado, se desglosan para desarrollar las características y condiciones de cada uno en el contexto histórico del orbe hispánico en sus reinos de ultramar, según las particularidades de sus fuentes normativas más importantes.

English Abstract: This article studies the juridical bases on which Spanish American ecclesiastics (bishops and parish priests) were able to exercise their capacity to renounce a benefice or to be transferred from one bishopric or parish to another. The spiritual and jurisdictional rights and obligations of the clergy to hold a benefice were regulated by canonical and civil legislation for Spanish America; beyond these norms, we have consulted the theological basis that gives meaning to the relationship between subject and benefice. The two acts, renunciation and transfer, are analyzed in order to elaborate the characteristics and conditions of each one with respect to the historical context of the Hispanic world in its overseas territories, according to the particularities of the law in its most important sources.

Keywords: Bishop, priest, transfer, resignation, hispanic world
