In the Middle Ages the Church acquired an enormous amount of land and other property. In most cases, it was held in mortmain, a feudal principle, later adopted by the common law, that restricted conveyance to specific parties, in this case those within the Church, unless an exception was made by a monarch. The Church's accumulation of material wealth through this practice was an important aspect of the conflict between church and state in the Medieval and early modern periods. Secular criticism became stronger during the Enlightenment, a movement that viewed the Church with suspicion, as we can see in this treatise by Rodriguez Campomanes, a notable Enlightenment-influenced Spanish statesman. It begins with a history and review of mortmain, then builds an argument for its curtailment. It was a fairly well-circulated book. An Italian translation was published in 1767 and a second Spanish-language edition followed in 1821. British Museum Catalogue (Compact Edition) 21:880.
