La tradizione politica ebraica in Italia tra XV e XVII secolo

In the Italian peninsula, between 1400 and 1600, some Jewish thinkers (Yochanan Alemanno, Yitzchaq Abravanel, David de’ Pomis e Simone Luzzatto) elaborated a political thought that combined the biblical and post-biblical tradition with the new sources that humanistic culture was making available, also providing a particular reading of political institutions, especially those of cities like Florence and Venice.The essay analyzes some of their reflections trying to highlight the novelties that their efforts produced not only in the Jewish thought, but also in the Christian one.
