CURSO 2021-2022

El Centro de Patrimonio Cultural Español, vinculado a la Facultad de Humanidades y Ciencias de la Comunicación y a la Fundación Universitaria San Pablo CEU, convoca una beca de investigación sobre Calderón de la Barca y el Siglo de Oro.

Se trata de una beca de alojamiento en el histórico edificio donde vivió y murió el gran escritor aurisecular, don Pedro Calderón de la Barca, y que perteneció a su familia. Fue su abuela, doña Inés de Riaño, quien estableció el patronato asociado a la iglesia del Salvador sobre dicho edificio, legándolo al nieto que siguiera la vocación sacerdotal, como fue el caso del escritor. Tras la muerte de Calderón en 1681, el inmueble fue transmitido a los descendientes de Calderón hasta que la familia vendió el inmueble a finales del S. XX.

La Fundación Universitaria San Pablo CEU a través del Centro CEU de Patrimonio Cultural Español, está intentando que este histórico inmueble pueda dedicarse a la memoria de don Pedro Calderón de la Barca.
