The Emergence of Religious Liberty in Modern France


Location: O'Shaughnessy Hall, Room 119

Tom Kselman, professor of history and fellow of the Nanovic Institute for European Studies

Taking us from the Edict of Nantes into the 19th century, with looks at Montaigne, Rousseau, and Voltaire along the way, Kselman will show how French thinkers created the conceptual space for greater individual religious choice.
