John O'Neal

Professor of French John C. O’Neal’s article “The Potential Convergence of Religious and Secular Interests in Voltaire's Traité sur la tolérance” has been published in the journal Religion in the Age of Enlightenment, volume 5 (2015): 211-30.

After the Charlie Hebdo terrorist attacks in France, the French turned “en masse” to this work by Voltaire for understanding. O’Neal used this article as the basis for his recent remarks to alumni over Fallcoming weekend at Hamilton.
