You were at the heart of the Enlightenment period.
Let’s not forget that The Enlightenment, known in French as the Siècle des Lumières, was a philosophical movement which dominated the world of ideas in Europe in the 18th century. The principal goals of Enlightenment thinkers were liberty, progress, reason, tolerance, and ending the abuses of the church and state. In France, the central doctrines of the Lumières were individual liberty and religious tolerance, in opposition to the principle of absolute monarchy and the fixed dogmas.
May these principles continue in our own hearts and minds. ♡
