This chapter continues the exploration of the impact of reformist state policies over the Livornese Jewish community, by focusing on the development of the Hebrew printing business in Livorno from government control to a free market. It probes the issue of governmental control over Hebrew publishing and the effects of state policies - especially economic reforms - on the production of Jewish culture, while also discussing the responses of Jewish printers to the transformation of the Hebrew press from a monopolistic to a competitive business, pursued by Grand Duke Peter Leopold. Additionally, it investigates the question of the control over the Hebrew press on the part of both Jewish and Christian authorities.

Keywords:   commerce, publishing, mercantilism, liberalism, printers, reforming absolutism, communal authority, Inquisition, Jewish entrepreneurs
