Chapter Summary

To the lord Boniface, most holy and most reverend father in Christ, by divine providence Supreme Pontiff of the sacred and universal Church: Brother James of Viterbo, of the Order of Hermits of Saint Augustine, professor in the faculty of theology, though unworthy, kisses his blessed feet with all devotion, obedience and reverence. Filial devotion to Holy Mother Church and to the Apostolic See over which you, consecrated prince of the shepherds and kings of the earth, preside by the disposition of the Most High, has led me to undertake the following short work on Christian government. The author has considered it worthy to be offered to no one more than the Holy Father who watches over the liberty of the Church and the exaltation of catholic truth with prudence and ardour.

Keywords: Christian government; Church; lord Boniface; Saint Augustine
