This book presents a radical reinterpretation of the great medieval thinker, Marsilius of Padua. George Garnett's iconoclastic re-reading of Marsilius's work - based on a careful attention to the texts - overturns the widely accepted view of him as a secular political theorist and proponent of republicanism, and re-establishes him in his proper historical context.
