And it’s rather timely …

I discovered a new John Locke manuscript. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)
At the time Locke was writing, religious uniformity was considered essential to social stability, and was rigorously enforced by law. But political reversals in 1667 meant Charles II had to seek support amongst “nonconformists” – and one key question was how far this tolerance should extend – to any denomination of Protestant, to Catholics, to Atheists, to other religious faiths?
