Abstract

The article discusses the origin and evolution of the concept of the "righteous ruling" from the works of Greek philosophers down to early Patristics and the seventh century AD Hiberno-Latin treatise De duodecim abusiuis saeculi in early medieval Europe, simultaneously comparing the emergence of the typologically similar concept in ancient India in the time of the king Ashoka (3th century BC) and early Buddhist sutras. Phenomenological and culturally typological analyses of the concept introduce the textual data of the wisdom genre from the early Irish and Indian traditions that present the teaching on the righteous ruling.
