Kenneth Brighenti The latter half of the 16th century through the middle of the 18th century brought even more changes to the world’s way of thinking — and to the Catholic Church.   Thomas Paine, defender of freedom, independence, and rational common sense during America's turbulent revolutionary period, offers insights into religion which ring sharply true more than two centuries later. This unabridged edition of The Age of Reason sets forth Paine's provocative observations on the place of religion in society.
