Religious works of 1776
About the Book
Un chrétien contre six Juifs and the Histoire de l’établissement du christianisme, along with La Bible enfin expliquée (OCV, vol.79A), are Voltaire’s last great works dealing with religion. In them he aims at the final destruction of l’Infâme as represented in characters from the Old Testament, Christian superstition, and religious intolerance. Voltaire had fought regularly against all these in the years after 1761. What distinguishes this latest production is the comprehensive quality of his enterprise and the shared outlook in promoting the ideal of deism.
