Seven hundred years after Dante’s death, the "Monarchia" is still a work capable of inspiring the jurist. In particular, the definition of law as a human relationship ('proportio') aimed at preserving society and guaranteeing the pursuit of the common good is both original and successful. Not only does it witness the complex cultural, political and legal reality in which Dante elaborated his thought and the influence the medieval philosophical and legal tradition had on them; it also allows us to project the conceptual density of that harmonising relationship beyond its time and space, to the point of suggesting and inspiring contemporary jurists.

Abstract

Seven hundred years after Dante’s death, the "Monarchia" is still a work capable of inspiring the jurist. In particular, the definition of law as a human relationship ('proportio') aimed at preserving society and guaranteeing the pursuit of the common good is both original and successful. Not only does it witness the complex cultural, political and legal reality in which Dante elaborated his thought and the influence the medieval philosophical and legal tradition had on them; it also allows us to project the conceptual density of that harmonising relationship beyond its time and space, to the point of suggesting and inspiring contemporary jurists.
