Abstract

The phenomenon called tacitism estab­ lished Tacitus' authority in the realm of politics strongly influenced by The Prince of Machiavelli. Because of the common caracteristics between the two protago­ nists (Cesare Borgia and Tiberius) the Counter-Reformation, having a particu­ lar dislike for Machiavelli, substituted him with Tacitus when developing its concept of the Reason of State.
