Riassunto: John Toland: Ireland's Forgotten Philosopher, Scholar ... and Heretic by J.N. Duggan This book sets out some of the more important aspects in the life and work of John Toland - scholar and philosopher of international renown; prolific writer on important political and religious issues of his day; a radical republican who challeged the divine right of kings; a diplomat whose Account of the Courts of Hanover and Prussia is still quoted by historians of the period; the first person to be called a freethinker (by Bishop Berkeley); the first to advocate full citizenship and equal rights for Jewish people. These are just some of his notable achievements yet he remains largely unknown in his home country. In his considerable volume of writings, he challenged political and ecclesiastical authority. He is chiefly remembered today for what was in fact his first work, Christianity not Mysterious (1696) - a book which was denounced in the English and Irish Parliaments and publicly burned in Dublin. Book. Paperback. Non-fiction, Irish history. 48 pages with illustrations, chronology, bibliography. Published in Ireland in 2010. ISBN: 978-1-907522-08-6.
