Vanished with the Rose 8: Louisa Ordeway
- an introduction to political thought
Seven programmes with Brian Redhead
3: Machiavelli and Calvin Niccolo Machiavelli (1469-1527) lived during a period of constant turmoil and war. After a career as civil servant and diplomat, the years from 1512 to his death were ones of rejection and he devoted himself to study - with results that ensured him a lasting place in the history of political thought. His book The Prince was designed to show the new prince of the Medici how to gain, hold and increase political power.
Unlike Machiavelli, Jean Calvin (1509-64) believed that all rightful authority is derived from God.
Calvin was a prime mover of the Reformation and his thought - both theological and political - can be found in his Institution of Christian Religion.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
