This volume makes available for the first time in English the writings about the Holy Roman Empire by Marsiglio of Padua, one of the most influential and original political thinkers of the Latin Middle Ages. The Defensor minor is a restatement and defense of Marsiglio's best known work, the Defensor pacis, and De translatione Imperii applies Marsiglio's general intellectual framework to the question of the exercise of imperial power.

"Cary Nederman's translation makes these remarkable works available in English for the first time, and his useful introduction relates them to the career and controversies of that most original medieval mind....In this compact and informative format, Marsiglio becomes a 'must read' for any who wish to grasp something of the intensity, variety, and far-reaching implications of medieval political thought." Gerald Christianson, Church History
