The article marks the presence of Lucretius’ De rerum natura in the corpus of Bruno’s works, both the Latin and vernacular. It aims to highlight the conceptual constellations in which the recovery of Lucretius, explicit and implicit, is inserted, underlining in particular the use of this source in a vitalistic key. Particular attention will be paid to the analysis of explicit revisions of the Lucretius’ text, comparing the 16th-century editions of Giordano Bruno’s texts with those of De rerum natura, highlighting Bruno’s citational strategies each time. Also, the importance of Lucretius’ presence in the magical works will be highlighted, in order to characterize the nature of what has important and significant effects on the body and soul of man while remaining below the level of sensitive and rational awareness.

Abstract

The article marks the presence of Lucretius’ De rerum natura in the corpus of Bruno’s works, both the Latin and vernacular. It aims to highlight the conceptual constellations in which the recovery of Lucretius, explicit and implicit, is inserted, underlining in particular the use of this source in a vitalistic key. Particular attention will be paid to the analysis of explicit revisions of the Lucretius’ text, comparing the 16th-century editions of Giordano Bruno’s texts with those of De rerum natura, highlighting Bruno’s citational strategies each time. Also, the importance of Lucretius’ presence in the magical works will be highlighted, in order to characterize the nature of what has important and significant effects on the body and soul of man while remaining below the level of sensitive and rational awareness.
