Edwin Curley, in Hobbes e Spinoza, (Daniela Bostrenghi, ed., intr. by Emilia Giancotti, Bibliopolis, 1992), pp. 497-593

Curley reexamines Hobbes’ reaction to the publication of Spinoza’s Theological-Political Treatise, taking up the question of Hobbes’ own religious views and the sincerity of his professions of the Christian faith.
