Resumen: Francesco Ruffini, fundador del Dere-
cho eclesiástico italianojunto a Francesco Scaduto,
defiende la centralidad de la libertad religiosa de los
ciudadanos como objeto de las normas estatales
en materia eclesiástica. Su propuesta es un refe-
rente en laconstrucción dogmática de esta libertad
en el ámbito del Derecho europeo. Al estudiar las
principales tesis de su magisterio se descubren mu-
chos aspectos coincidentes con la propuesta de li-
bertad religiosa que, unos ahos más tarde, sosten-
drá la Declaración conciliar Dignitatis humanae.
Palabras clave: Libertad religiosa, Derecho ecle-
siástico italiano, Dignitatis humanae.


Abstract: Francesco Ruffini, founder of Italian
ecclesiastical law with Francesco Scaduto, defends
the centrality of religious freedom of citizens as an
object of state laws in ecclesiastical matters. His
proposal is a benchmark in the dogmatic
construction of this freedom in the European law.
By studying the main theses of his teaching, we can
found coincident aspects about religious freedom
that the Conciliar Declaration Dignitatis humanae
will teach a few years later.
Keywords: Religious Freedom, Italian Ecclesiastical
Law, Dignitatis humanae.
