Chapter Summary

This chapter provides concluding remarks for this book. Claude de Seyssel’s extensive scholarship made sense only in the context of war and domination. The book asks how Cordova’s innovations in battle tactics related to the concept of the mystical body politic. The study of Seyssel necessitated an interdisciplinary approach because he himself was a mediator between cultures and a conduit of information geographically and professionally. Seyssel stood at the intersection between the histories of France and Italy, between scholarship and war, between noble identity and national consciousness, and between feudalism and the rise of the nation-state. With regard to military affairs, Seyssel responded to revolutions in technology, tactics, and strategy. He envisioned the French monarchy as unified and constitutional in the Monarchie de France. The book highlights that the shape of Seyssel’s language reflected his perception of reality based on the world as he experienced it.
