Quentin Skinner on State (Polity) - Dictionary of Arguments

Gaus I 197
State/Skinner/Morris: Before the sixteenth century, the term status was only used by political writers to refer to one of two things: either the state or condition in which a ruler finds him-
self (the status principis); or else the general 'state of the nation' or condition of the realm as a whole (the status regno. What was lacking in these usages was the distinctively modern idea of the State as a form of public power separate from both the ruler and the ruled, and constituting the supreme political authority within a certain defined territory. (Skinner, 1978(1): 353)
