From the first decades of the seventeenth century in Europe, a considerable availability of texts, the study of the Arabic language, the newly-established university chairs, and various tran- slations led to a flowering of interest in Arabic and Islamic culture and the Koran. The Sephardic community of Amsterdam and the Dutch universities were greatly influenced by this knowledge and played an active part in the new cultural panorama. What stimuli, what readings and what works might have drawn the attention of Baruch Spinoza? The philosopher’s reflection proceeded along two different planes: one was political-social, anti-tyrannical and tolerant;; the other addressed ontological-religious issues, dealing with questions of essence, intellect and will in God, and religious imposture.
Keywords: Socinians, Islam, Spinoza, Bayle, Tufayl, Anti-Trinitarianism, toleration, imposture.
