Summary

Voltaire (1694-1778), novelist, dramatist, poet, philosopher, historian, and satirist, was one of the most renowned figures of the Age of Enlightenment. In this collection of anti-clerical works from the last twenty-five years of Voltaire's life, he roundly attacks the philosophical optimism of the deists, the so-called inspiration of the Bible, the papacy, and vulgar superstition. These great works reveal Voltaire not only as a polemicist but also as a profound humanitarian. Selections include Poem on the Lisbon Disaster, We Must Take Sides, The Questions of Zapate, The Sermon of the Fifty, homilies on superstition and the interpretation of the Old and New Testaments, and his famous Treatise on Toleration.This is a very hard-to-find translation of Voltaire's major short writings on religion. At last a reprint of a truly scarce and important book! -The American Rationalist
