Sedulius Scottus, De Rectoribus Christianis
'On Christian Rulers'
In his significant political treatise On Christian Rulers, Sedulius Scottus (fl. c.850) attempted to clarify the proper relation between spiritual and secular power. Dyson has produced this new critical edition of the Latin text, with facing translation; he also provides an introduction covering what we know of Sedulius' life, the background to this work and its place in the development of political theory in the Christian West.
