Liberty and Concord in the United Provinces: Religious Toleration and the Public in the Eighteenth-Century Netherlands
This volume offers an outline of developments in the intellectual debate on religious liberty, religious toleration and religious concord in the eighteenth-century Netherlands. Emphasizing changes in the relations between religious belief and the public sphere, it seeks to add new perspectives to recent analyses of toleration. Each chapter of this book discusses a different aspect of the eighteenth-century Dutch toleration debate. On the basis of a large number of sources, and paying particular attention to minor writers, a broad variety of topics is treated, ranging from the official Reformed confessions and legal scholarship to unionism, apologetics, sociability, and the press. This study extends contemporary analyses of early modern thought on toleration to the end of the eighteenth century.
