«Pro tranquillo et pacifico statu humanae reipublicae»: Guglielmo Centueri fra religione e politica nell’età di Gian Galeazzo Visconti

Autore: Barbara Baldi
In: I libri di Viella. 128

The essay focuses on the treatise De iure monarchiae (1400 ca.), written by Guglielmo Centueri (OFM, 1340-1402 ca.). In particular, it tries to show the close relation between the religious and political experience of the author – theologian, important member of the Franciscan order and central figure of the politics of Gian Galeazzo Visconti – and the development of his reflection on the nature and character of papal monarchy, and, more directly, of the "state", within which special attention has been paid to the reconsideration of the connection between public good, private good and the "state".
