Juan Luis Vives
Juan Luis Vives (born March 6, 1492, Valencia, Aragon, Spain — died May 6, 1540, Brugge [now in Belgium]), Spanish humanist and student of Erasmus, eminent in education, philosophy, and psychology, who strongly opposed Scholasticism and emphasized induction as a method of inquiry.
   Vives left Spain at the age of 17 to avoid the Inquisition. After studies at Paris (1509–1512), he was appointed professor of the humanities at Leuven (Louvain [1519]). Having dedicated his commentary (1522) on St. Augustine’s De civitate Dei to Henry VIII of England, he went in 1523 to England, where he was appointed preceptor to Mary, princess of Wales, and lectured on philosophy at Oxford. In 1527 he forfeited Henry’s favour by opposing the royal divorce from Catherine of Aragon and was imprisoned for six weeks, after which he left England for the Netherlands to devote himself to writing.
   In education Vives achieved renown through such works as De ratione studii puerilis (completed 1523; “On the Right Method of Instruction for Children”) and De disciplinis libri XX (1531; “Twenty Books on Disciplines”), in which he advocated the use of the vernacular in schools, argued for the building of academies, and supported the education of women. Perhaps his greatest innovation was to recommend the study of nature for boys, applying the principle of induction from personal inquiry and experience that Erasmus had advocated for the study of Scripture and languages.
   Vives’s claim to eminence in psychology and philosophical method rests on his De anima et vita libri tres (1538; “Three Books on the Soul and on Life”), in which he discusses the association of ideas, the nature of memory, and even animal psychology. The work somewhat anticipates the ideas of the great thinkers of the century following his death by its emphasis on induction as a method of psychological and philosophical discovery.

Royal College of Corpus Christi, Valencia Spain
The Royal Seminary of Corpus Christi, founded in 1583 by patriarch San Juan de Ribera, houses an invaluable wealth of cultural heritage. It is an important building architecturally for reflecting the importance the Italian Renaissance had in Spain. The structure takes up an entire city block, deliberately built in front of the original university so that the students and seminarists could easily attend relevant classes. The main entrance on Calle La Nave shows a mix of architectural styles, and the main double vestibule or hall separates the church from the "Capilla de la Inmaculada", both of which are worthy of a visit. But perhaps this seminary's most important feature architecturally is the cloistered patio, considered one of the most beautiful within the Spanish Renaissance. The building also houses the Patriarca museum where you can contemplate a selection of paintings by Archbishop Ribera as well as many other artists. All of these works are respresentative of the painting done in the 16th and 17th centuries. Here you'll find works by Juan de Juanes, el Greco, Novaro and Baglione.
