Thomas Hobbes's doctrine of conscience and theories of synderesis in Renaissance England

Hobbes Studies 23 (1):54-71 (2010)
Is there a specifically "Hobbesian moment" in the extremely complex history of the idea of conscience? In order to answer this question and to understand why Hobbes's conception of conscience was so innovative, one needs to look at the materials he used to build his system, including the medieval doctrine of synderesis. The article examines the way this doctrine was both perpetuated and altered in Renaissance England
