 Voltaire Biography
(1694-1778)

    Born Francois-Marie Arouet in Paris, Voltaire, a pen name he adopted early in his career, through his writings, became the "embodiment of the 18th-century enlightenment." He was against organized religion, fanaticism, intolerance and superstition; his cry: Ecrasez l'infâme! ("Crush the infamous thing!") He was a constant source of irritation to the political and religious authorities of the time. ("If God did not exist, it would be necessary to invent him.") At times he found himself in prison, and, at other times, fleeing the country (he spent three years in England [1726-29], and was much taken up with the English political and scientific scene, in particular, Locke and Newton). His works and ideas helped to foster the French Revolution.
