A seminal essay on secular and religious power, De Monarchia examines the relationship between secular authority (represented by the Holy Roman Emperor) and religious authority (represented by the Pope)—a controversial subject at the time. Dante’s point of view is clear; he had defended the autonomy of Florence against the demands of Pope Boniface VIII.

About the Author

Dante Alighieri (1265–1321) is considered the greatest Italian poet. After the death of his beloved Beatrice—his ideal woman—he wrote a celebration of her and love in The New Life. His masterpiece, The Divine Comedy, is a classic of world literature, and describes the poet’s tour—guided by Virgil and Beatrice—of hell, purgatory, and paradise.
