'In bringing to light the diversity of participants in and places and forms of everyday religious and philosophical debates, Barbierato has made a useful contribution to scholarship on Venice and on belief and unbelief more generally.' Renaissance Quarterly 'The book is based on much archival material and wide reading in secondary sources. The prose is clear, vigorous, and sometimes verbose. Barbierato provides numerous colorful quotations of people appearing before the Inquisition in lively English translations... This is a good book about unbelief in Venice.' Catholic Historical Review 'In this fascinating book, Federico Barbierato charts the rapid expansion of unbelief, irreligiousness, and scepticism in Venice ca. 1640-1740.' American Historical Review '... combine[s] fascinating case studies with a great breadth of vision and a Europe-wide perspective.' European History Quarterly 'Barbierato provides us with a fascinatingly rich account and analyses of a whole variety of people and publications challenging orthodoxies - religious, political, moral and social.' Ecclesiastical History 'Barbierato's book is an important study that redirects attention to an overlooked period of Italian religious history and successfully draws out its interest and complexity.' English Historical Review
