Question and answer
Q: Use the following excerpt below from Voltaire's A Treatise on Tolerance (1763) to answer the following question: When Bishop Alexander and Arius the priest began first to dispute in what manner the
Logos proceeded from the Father, the Emperor Constantine wrote to them in the following words: "You are great fools to dispute about things you can not understand." If the two contending parties had been wise enough to agree that the emperor was right, Christendom would not have been drenched in blood for three hundred years. Public Domain What view of religion does Voltaire express in this passage? People need to accept and tolerate the beliefs of other faiths. Religion is the cause of much war and bloodshed. It is a mistake to hold one religious belief rather than another. All faiths should unite in the beliefs that they all share.
A: In the passage "When Bishop Alexander and Arius the priest began first to dispute in what manner the Logos proceeded from the Father, [ [ the Emperor Constantine wrote to them in the following words reported by Eusabius and Socrates: "You are great fools to dispute about things you can not understand." If the two contending parties had been wise enough to agree that the emperor was right,
Christendom would not have been drenched in blood for three hundred years," Voltire expresses a disdain for the blindness of following a religion without also using common sense. ] ]
