Question description

the books are :

Machiavelli, The Prince 15 and 26 / Luther, On Secular Authority / Marsilius, Defensor Pacis / Sigmund’s edition of Aquinas on Politics and Ethics: selections of Aquinas on Kingship (pp. 12-29) and on Law (pp. 44-58) / Qur’an: Sura 2, Sura 9 / Eusebius: Speech in Praise of Constantine / Basil: On Greek Literature / Augustine: City of God (in Sigmund edition of Aquinas, pp. 103-107) / Einhard, Life of Charlemagne (pp. 15-44)

answer in detail please.

  • How does Machiavelli’s prince differ from Aquinas’ king?
  •  How would Aristotle assess Machiavelli’s prince? Consider both regime (monarchy / tyranny) as well as attitudes regarding virtue and vice.
  •  What basic aspects of feudalism are witnessed in Einhard and the various Crusades texts read for class? How do these anticipate Aquinas’ attitude about kingship?
  •  How do Aquinas’ distinctions and definitions among the various kinds of law compare with Antigone’s exchange with Creon in Sophocles’ play? To what degree do Aquinas’ distinctions depend on his Christian theology, and to what degree on classical tradition?
  •  What pitfalls appear when the authority of state and church are confused? When they are completely walled off from each other? Defend your answer with an analysis of three of the following texts: Eusebius, Augustine, Quran, Crusades texts, Marsilius, Luther.
  •  How does the notion of citizenship develop through western civilization? How is it distinct in Greece, Rome, and the middle ages? Offer a definition and trace its development through at least two core texts.
