Enlightenment and Religion: Rational Dissent in Eighteenth-Century Britain

Portada
Knud Haakonssen, Quentin Skinner
Cambridge University Press, 30 de maig 1996 - 348 pàgines
This book reassesses the relationship between Enlightenment and religion in England. It has long been accepted that liberal, rational dissenters developed an Enlightenment agenda, but most literature on this topic is out of date. These interdisciplinary essays provide a fresh analysis of rational dissent within English Enlightenment culture from a variety of viewpoints. Its wide perspective and new research make Enlightenment and Religion an important and original contribution to eighteenth-century studies.
