Description Dante Alighieri was also a philosopher, a politician, an Italian nationalist, a Florentine patriot, and an exiled; but, as T.S. Eliot has noted, at the same time a universal one and a cosmopolitan. What is the right place of love for one's nation in the Christian world-view? In Shakespeare we find "two kinds of patriotism" (as John Finnis stated); the old-medieval one, similar to that of Dante, looking for the ecclesiastical and imperial unity, - and the modern, Elizabethan and English nationalism leading to the unity of the established Church and the Monarchy and to a "splendid isolation".
