Treatise on Tolerance

This work brings together all three aspects of Voltaire: the writer, the doer and the philosophe. The traité pour la tolérance was written on the Occasion of the Death of Jean Calas from the Judgment Rendered in Toulouse. Published in 1768 Voltaire calls for religious toleration, and targets religious fanaticism, especially that of the Jesuits, indicting all superstitions surrounding religions.
