His main work in this area is the Idea de un príncipe político cristiano representada en cien empresas (Idea of ​​a political-Christian prince, presented in 100 emblems), which appeared in Spanish in Munich in 1640. The idea is in the tradition of the "emblem books", a literary genre that the Italian humanist Andrea Alciato founded with his emblematum liber, which had been translated into Spanish in 1549. Saavedra's learned work was also influenced by another collection of emblems, the Emblemata politica by Jacob von Bruck-Angermund (Strasbourg and Cologne, 1618). Saavedra's intention was to create a moral-philosophical guide for the political education of a Christian prince and ruler.
