Abstract: This is an online tool regarding the correspondence of Tommaso Campanella and can be accessed from the following link: . The catalogue contains the 172 known extant letters by Campanella. It includes dedicatory letters published in some of his works, as well as fragments of letters that have been indicated as such. The letters are in Italian and Latin, bar one written in Spanish. Addressees include notable scientists and scholars (for example, Galileo, dal Pozzo, Gassendi, Peiresc), popes, cardinals and other prelates, as well as rulers and civil authorities. Campanella’s letters are an especially rich source of biographical information, and an indispensable point of reference for the study of the intricate history of his writings. The subject matter of the correspondence ranges from philosophical, scientific, and political discussions to self-advocacy and lists of completed and projected works.
