$63.00

Paperback
"Joseph Canning's survey of medieval political thought is grounded in a wide range of primary source material. He has also brought together the latest research, much of which is now made available in English for the first time. The result is a comprehensive yet accessible one-volume account of medieval political thought from around 300 to 1450." "The book covers four periods, each with a different focus. From 300 to 750 Canning examines Christian ideas of rulership. The often neglected centuries from 750 to 1050, the Carolingian period and its aftermath, are given special attention. From 1050 to 1290 the conflict between temporal and spiritual power and the revived legacy of antiquity comes to the fore. Finally, in the period from 1290 to 1450, Canning focuses on the confrontation with political reality in ideas of church and state, and in juristic thought."--BOOK JACKET.
