John Toland a jeho Křesťanství bez mystérií

Jan Čížek a kol.

Abstract


The text John Toland and His Christianity not Mysterious consists of two interconnected parts. The first part represents a brief biographical essay on John Toland (1670–1722), in which we also try to present a general introduction to Toland’s thought. The second part presents the first Czech translation of the Preface to Toland’s most famous treatise Christianity not Mysterious (1696) which is regarded as the main stimulus to the Deist discussion on the British Isles.

Keywords


John Toland; Deism; philosophy of religion; freethought
