Voltaire, a life for the Enlightenment.

Who knows Voltaire’s most important thoughts, who his life and his most important works? To whom is Voltaire known as a determined opponent of the church and a critic of Christianity? Who knows in Germany what is wrong with the judicial murder of Jean Calas or the Chevalier de la Barre, where Voltaire stood alone against the powerful Catholic Church? Who knows that for fifteen years he lived together with the great love of his life, the married Emilie du Châtelet, and both appeared together in public?
