Voices for Tolerance
Drawing on the Folger's rich collections of sixteenth- and seventeenth-century books, manuscripts, and works of art, Voices for Tolerance in an Age of Persecution tells the story of the struggle between tolerance and persecution. It traces the roots of our quest for liberty of conscience and freedom of expression and explores how individuals and communities in early modern Europe experienced and responded to the forces of hate, racism, and intolerance as their world expanded. Sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Europe provides obvious examples of these tendencies, but it also offers ample evidence of the struggle for tolerance and for freedom of expression. Though justifiably regarded as an era of crisis, religious warfare and persecution, this period also generated powerful voices for peace and toleration.
