It’s  taken 250 years  but Voltaire finally has a best seller on his hands.

Voltaire

 

His 1763 “Treatise on Tolerance” has been climbing the French bestsller lists following the Paris terror attacks earlier this month.  The book is a cry against religious fanaticism and stemmed from Voltaire’s conviction that religious differences were at the heart of world strife.  He wrote at a time of bloody tension between French Protestants and Catholics.  The book now has a place among the bestsellers for Amazon, FNAC and French bookseller Gibert Joseph.
