(p.1) Introduction
Conscience and Conversion

Thomas Kselman

Yale University Press

The Introduction reviews the scholarly literature on religious liberty and conversion, and proposes that the stories of French converts in the aftermath of the French Revolution provide a unique perspective for studying these issues. It introduces the major characters in the book, figures whose dramatic religious choices drew a large audience. This public fascination with converts and conversions attests to the interest and anxiety that accompanied the establishment of religious liberty as a constitutional right. The Introduction closes with a summary of the chapters that follow.

Keywords:   Conversion, religious liberty, disenchantment, Lewis Rambo, William Reddy
