Le Théâtre de l’incrédulité Trois pièces manuscrites des Lumières irréligieuses

  • Publication type: Book
  • Éditeur scientifique: Sandrier (Alain)
  • Abstract: These three previously unpublished plays, staged between 1737 and 1764, treat religion with an irreverence inherited from the philosophical spirit of the time. Previously only available in their manuscript form, Charles Duclos' La Mort de Mardi-Gras is influenced by fairground theatre, the anonymous L'Embrasement de Sodome is an iconoclastic take on a biblical theme, and the equally anonymous La Religion is a philosophical allegory.
