HISTORY of Christian Theology

(c. A.D. 1275–1342) Marsilius wrote the political treatise Defensor pacis in 1324 which contested Papal claims to political power and laid the foundations for modern concepts of sovereignty. He argued for a form of republicanism where sovereignty lies with the people and legitimacy is achieved through democratic elections.
