A Letter Concerning Toleration is an important work written by John Locke and originally published in latin in the late 17th century. John Locke argues in this writing for there to be a new udnerstanding between the relationships of religion and government. Providing a contrary view to that of Thomas Hobbes in Leviathan, Locke was a founder of Empiricism and denounced it for its support of toleration of the various Christian denominations. This is a key publication for those studying government or the writings of John Locke and the debates among early political writers, which are still largely relevant today.
