The 18th century was a wealth of knowledge, exploration and rapidly growing technology and expanding record-keeping made possible by advances in the printing press. In its determination to preserve the century of revolution, Gale initiated a revolution of its own: digitization of epic proportions to preserve these invaluable works in the largest archive of its kind. Now for the first time these high-quality digital copies of original 18th century manuscripts are available in print, making them highly accessible to libraries, undergraduate students, and independent scholars.
The Age of Enlightenment profoundly enriched religious and philosophical understanding and continues to influence present-day thinking. Works collected here include masterpieces by David Hume, Immanuel Kant, and Jean-Jacques Rousseau, as well as religious sermons and moral debates on the issues of the day, such as the slave trade. The Age of Reason saw conflict between Protestantism and Catholicism transformed into one between faith and logic -- a debate that continues in the twenty-first century.

Half-title: An account of the French prophets, with others of the like spirit. Variously attributed to Charles Chauncy, Benjamin Colman and Ezra Stiles. Chauncy denies knowledge of its authorship in correspondence reprinted in: New England historical and genealogical register 10 (October, 1856): 334. The appendix, apparently by another hand (Charles Chauncy's?), is signed: Anti-Enthusiasticus. See Gaustad, E.S. "Charles Chauncy and the Great Awakening" in Papers of the Bibliographical Society of America 45 (1951): 125-135. Gaustad suggests Chauncy Whittelsey as author of the Wonderful narrative. Error in paging: p. 55 misnumbered 57. "Corrections."--p. .
