Conversations of the West: Antiquity and the Enlightenment November 28, 2005 11:00-12:15 TA Menachem Session 18 Voltaire – Letters Concerning the English Nation Voltaire’s “Letters Concerning the English Nation” was a very educational book to read, not only because it talked about Voltaire’s views of the English, but also because his views of the religions gave a lot of insight to each individual religion he talked about. Voltaire’s first four chapters on the Quakers were my favorite part to read in “Letters Concerning the English Nation”. There was a lot about the Quakers that I never knew until I read this. Voltaire starts out his “Letters” with the four chapters on the Quakers. The Quakers seemed to have done practices that were what Jesus would have wanted his followers to do. The first Quaker that Voltaire visited explained to him that Quakers didn’t get baptized because it wasn’t a Christian tradition, but actually a Jewish tradition.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
