Noel Aubert De Verse (1642-1714) a Study in the Concept of Toleration
|Author: ||Morman, Paul|
A collection of all the publications relating to this little-known French intellectual, with an assessment of his contribution as a precursor of Enlightenment ideas. Examines Aubert's concepts of religious toleration as an extension of his Christian theology and 17th-century philosophical perspective.
"Morman is careful to present Aubert's limitations and significance; he avoids the pitfall of some biographers who claim too much for their subjects. . . . [Aubert] was far beneath Bayle, Jurieu, Arnauld, Bossuet, and Nicole but worthy of a full-length study. Morman's monograph will interest specialists in the decade of the 1680s." - The American Historical Review
