Lucretius, irreligion and atheism in early-modern Venice

Abstract: This chapter argues that, contrary to some claims for the subversiveness of the De rerum natura, the poem’s reception in Venice and Padua indicates that it was widely read by leading clergy. Close study of the Index of Prohibited Books and Inquisition and other censorship records indicates no concerns about the reading of Lucretius. While heterodox views can be traced, these seem to have had no direct relations with the growing interest in Epicureanism.
