Paper by Alexander Marey in Cuadernos de Historia del Derecho

The new paper by Alexander Marey in the journal Cuadernos de Historia del Derecho.

In the new issue of the journal Cuadernos de Historia del Derecho (Vol. 21, 2014) the article by Alexander Marey was published. The paper El rey, el emperador, el tirano: el concepto del poder e ideal político en la cultura intelectual alfonsina (The king, the emperor, the tyran: the concept of power and political ideal in the intellectual alphonsine culture) was prepared as a part of the research project "Scientific Translation and Commenting of Siete Partidas of Alfonso X of Castile". The full Spanish-language text is available on the journal's page.
El rey, el emperador, el tirano: el concepto del poder e ideal político en la cultura intelectual alfonsina (The king, the emperor, the tyran: the concept of power and political ideal in the intellectual alphonsine culture)
The subject of this article is the concept of power developed by the jurists of Alfonso the Wise in the Partidas. The main role of the king as the political and spiritual leader of his Kingdom is shown through a system of oppositions. The existing main distinction between the king and emperor is also seen in the alphonsine doctrine: the power of the former has a mystical character, while the second is based on purely rational grounds.
