establish how deeply committed the enlightened bureaucratic elite were to the
maintenance of social con- trol among the lower orders. The origin of the desire
to discipline and control was the bureaucratic elite's access to state power. Being
a responsible member of both the bureaucracy and the cultural elite motivated

... that continues to block any real access to other types of rationality. On the other
hand, it tells of a constant blackmail applied by reason, a logical Manicheanism
that drives those who are disappointed or dissatisfied to turn to the opposite
extreme. Certainly, to put the Enlightenment on trial in the way that John Saul
does in Voltaire} Bastards, a violent attack against the tyranny of rationalization
that traces such single-minded thought back to Voltaire and Rousseau, makes
little sense.

enlightenment of the Court and jury upon the vital question of mental
responsibility. It was, therefore, in accordance with the desire expressed to me by
the District Attorney that he was allowed such latitude of conduct, unrestrained
except so far as necessary to conduct the proceedings at all, in order to furnish to
particularly the expert witnesses who were present an opportunity to diagnose
his case. It was thought ...

major public events, allowing Scottish authorities the opportunity to confront the '
atheism' they feared was festering in the capital, to demonstrate their commitment
to 'godliness' and to clarify the boundaries of acceptable speech and debate. For
many of them, this was the time to uphold the covenants with the full force of the

chapter3 The intellectual worlds of Naples and Scotland 1680–c.1725 'atheists'
on trial There were trials of 'atheists' in both Scotland and Naples at the end of the
seventeenth century. As so often in such prosecutions, the victims in the two
cases were young men. In other respects the trials were markedly different. In
Naples the case was complex, protracted, and inconclusive. It began in 1688,
when the twenty-one-year-old Francesco Paolo Manuzzi denounced two slightly
