First published in 1957, Ernst Kantorowicz's THE KING'S TWO BODIES traces the "King's two bodies", the body politic and the body natural, back to the Middle Ages. By placing the concept in its proper setting of medieval thought and political theory, Kantorowicz demonstrates how the early-modern Western monarchies gradually began to develop a "political theology". illustrations.
