The inseparability of ethics and economics was simply a matter of fact in the minds of these great early classical liberals. That is what enabled them to wrap their minds around the issues confronting human civilization as it painstakingly advanced.

Some Huguenots wrote a justification for rebelling against a tyrannical king during the Reformation and it gave a boost to the Dutch rebellion against Spain. Does anyone know if the Huguenot track came before or after Mariana’s or if it drew inspiration from Mariana?

De Rege was published in 1599. “Vindiciae Contra Tyrannos” (A Defense Of Liberty Against Tyrants), the most famous Huguenot tract, was published in 1579.
