Early Tuscan Civic Thought

This study will be concerned with the communes of Tuscany, especially Florence, between 1250 and 1320. Study will concentrate on the four most interesting political and historical theorists of the period: Brunetto Latini, Ptolemy of Lucca, Remigio de'Girolami, and Dante Alighieri and will try to determine the extent and nature of their local and Roman patriotism and of their republicanism. This is a subject of considerable importance since Tuscany, along with Padua, was undoubtedly the cradle of modern republican thought.
