Marsilius of Padua is conventionally obvious as a philosopher prior to his time: the 1st secular political theorist, and the 1st post-classical philosopher to espouse republicanism. he's provided as a scholastic precursor of the republican humanists of the Renaissance.

Starting with an exam of the missed proof for Marsilius's existence, and the modern reaction to his best-known paintings, the Defensor Pacis, this new learn argues that such an interpretation is kind of mistaken. It indicates that Marsilius used to be no longer a republican, yet an imperialist; and that faraway from being a mundane political theorist, his nice paintings Defensor Pacis is underpinned by means of a profound Christian knowing of heritage as a providentially ordained process.
