“Ratio Civilis” 
The Transformation of Urban Political Cultures in the Age of the Reformation

"Vult politica civem bonum: et quid aliud latores legum suis institutionibus moliuntur? Nam si virtutes quaeris, legalis iustitia cunctas virtutes amplexa est. Nec aliud est legalis scientia, quam ipsa iustitia vera, divina, naturalis, et aeterna".

"The aim of politics is to form good citizens: and what else do legislators strive for by their institutions? Since if you long for virtues, it's legal justice, that implies all of them. Legal science is nothing else than the true, divine, natural and eternal justice herself".

Coluccio Salutati, De Nobilitate (1399)
