The First Atheist: The Writings And Legacy Of Matthias Knutzen

Although atheists had been targeted for attack by European authorities for many decades, it wasn't until 1673 that a certain brave soul confessed, even boasted, of being an atheist. Matthias Knutzen was the first person known to have adopted this label for himself. In an open letter and two short dialogues, he also professed to reject political authority, priests, the institution of marriage, and anything else that clashes with reason, knowledge, and conscience. He also discusses his "new religion", the Conscientarians, a community striving to attain truth and morality together.This book contains the following three writings by Knutzen, in their first English translations, along with the original texts:"A Friendly Wish from a Friend to a Friend!" (Amicus, Amicis, Amica!)"A Dialogue between an Educated Innkeeper and Three Guests of Different Religions" (Ein Gespräch zwischen einem Lateinischen Gastgeber und drey ungleicher Religions-Gästen)"A Conversation between a Chaplain, named Dr. Heinrich Brummer, and an Educated Pattern-Printer" (Gesprech zwischen einem Feld-Prediger Nahmens D. Heinrich Brummer und dem einem Lateinischen Munster-Schreiber)This book also explores Knutzen's intellectual impact with selections from the following authors, writing between 1674 and 1923:-Johannes Musæus-Pierre Bayle-Mathurin Veyssière de La Croze-Jacques-André Naigeon-Bruno Bauer-Bernhard Pünjer-Leo Baeck-Fritz Mauthner
