The relationship between politics and religion has always been the focus of Hobbesian literature, which generally privileges the theme of the Christian State, i.e. the union of temporal and spiritual power in a sovereign-representative person, as exemplarily portrayed in the title page of Leviathan. Over the last few decades, however, other perspectives of interpretation have become established, which analyze the relationship between politics and religion in Hobbes by using specifically theological categories. This essay takes the latter direction, and aims at offering elements to think over the above-mentioned relationship by using two key categories of Hobbesian theology – the Kingdom of God and potentia Dei – which allow us to reconsider the limits of political sovereignty.

Abstract

The relationship between politics and religion has always been the focus of Hobbesian literature, which generally privileges the theme of the Christian State, i.e. the union of temporal and spiritual power in a sovereign-representative person, as exemplarily portrayed in the title page of Leviathan. Over the last few decades, however, other perspectives of interpretation have become established, which analyze the relationship between politics and religion in Hobbes by using specifically theological categories. This essay takes the latter direction, and aims at offering elements to think over the above-mentioned relationship by using two key categories of Hobbesian theology – the Kingdom of God and potentia Dei – which allow us to reconsider the limits of political sovereignty.
