Ramon Llull, inspirer and pedagogue of civil religion (DOI: 10.2436/20.3000.02.42)

Pere Fullana Puigserver


The article presents the new place of the figure of Ramon Llull in the modern civic and religious universe. Llullism has had a clear impact on Mallorcan society since the 14th century, in parallel to the knowledge and the university-centred and political debates he generated in the past. Llull was the Blessed Brother par excellence and the originator of the Fatherland, and he continues to be so in contemporary times. This article is divided into two main sections: first, one in which the changes and adaptations of Llull in the 19th century are presented, and secondly, one which addresses the dual role -religious and civic- of the figure of Llull within the framework of the commemoration of the 6th centennial of his death, promoted by the diocese based on the initiatives of Bishop Pere Joan Campins, and by Palma City Hall with the creation of the Institut d'Estudis Superiors per a la Dona [Institute of Higher Studies for Women].

Key words: religion, Catholicism, feminism, Llullism, modernity, education, Mallorca
