Storyboard Text

  • Niccolo Machiavelli 1469-1527
  • Leonardo da Vinci
  • Machiavelli was a Italian writer who wrote a different kind of hand book about the government.  He had served Florence  as a diplomat and had observed kings and princes in foreign courts.  He also studied ancient Roman history.  He wrote a guide to rulers on how to gain and maintain power 
  • Machiavelli wrote about politics and a guide to rulers of how to gain power.  But he did not discuss leadership in terms of high ideals.  "The Prince" looked at real rulers 
  • What Machiavelli Wrote 
  • In My opinion I think that Niccolo Machiavelli is a humanist because the definition of humanism is based on the study of classical culture, humanism focused on wordy subjects rather than on the religious issues that ad occupied medieval thinkers.  Machiavelli does all of that when he writes.
