The Republic of Letters was an international network of scholarly communication which transcended religious and political interests. This network functioned as a means of circulating knowledge, above all bibliographical, historical and antiquarian news. This article probes the way in which the Republic of Letters connected two distinct confessional areas, the Calvinist Dutch Republic and Catholic Italy (mainly Tuscany and Rome), in a period when confessional boundary lines had taken more or less definite shape, around 1700. It will become clear that there was a lively scholarly exchange between these two regions, but confessional interests dictated the choices which scholars made. Three case studies will show the limits of religious impartiality. They constantly had to negotiate tensions between religious interests and intellectual virtuosity.
