Existing research on the political theory of Antonio Negri mainly focuses on Empire and its sequels, or his involvement in the autonomia movement in the late 1970 in Italy. However, Negri’s other works composed during his imprisonment and later - especially those philosophical writings concerned with theology – are often overlooked. This study is an attempt to deal with the relationship between religion or theology and power in Negri’s works, and to investigate the compatibility and contradiction between his perspective and Christian theology.
