Abstract: This essay proposes an interpretation of the Christian theological discourse developed in Thomas Hobbes’s Leviathan in order to show: 1) its theoretical-systematic value in the definition of the political form, that is, of the conceptual articulation that sustains the sovereignty device; 2) its complementarity to the performative trait of the Hobbesian anthropological discourse, that is, to the determination of the profile of a specific form of life, adapted to the sovereign order because capable of reproducing industriously within it and which is, at the same time, the primary product of that order. This interpretation shows that the Christian Commonwealth is the complete realization of the Hobbes’s anthropological-political project.
