We analyze the historicity of the Nicholas of Cusa´s conception about truth through the study of: i) the ruptures and continuities between his conception and other previous conceptions of truth, and ii) his institutional belonging and the historical moment. We link the continuities between his ecclesiological work and his philosophical work with the affinity among them and its political objectives framed in the conflicts of the Church of that time. We show how the historical moment constitutes not only a contextual factor but also an explicative one of his philosophical thought.
Keywords : Nicholas of Cusa; Truth; Historical moment.
