The Age Of Reason

By Thomas Paine

Thomas Paine declared: Of all the tyrannies that affect mankind, tyranny in religion is the worst. Paine’s years of study and reflection on the role of religion in society culminated with his final work, The Age of Reason. This coolly reasoned polemic influenced religious thinking throughout the world at the dawn of the nineteenth century, and its resonance remains undiminished by time.

The selfsame humanist and egalitarian views that made Paine a popular figure of the American Revolution brought him into frequent conflict with political authorities. Parts of The Age of Reason were written in a French jail, where Paine was confined for his opposition to the execution of Louis XVI.

The Age of Reason is a classic of freethought.
