Age of Reason (2)

Resource Toolbox

In history, period of the French Revolution inaugurated November 10, 1793, when an actress, typifying the "Goddess of Reason," was enthroned upon the high altar of Notre Dame Cathedral, Paris; and ending when the Law of February 21, 1795, restored some measure of religious liberty. Thomas Paine wrote his "Age of Reason" in a French prison, 1794; it is a rough-and-ready presentment of Deism.
