Back ground

*Voltaire was born in Paris in 1694

*When Voltaire was born there was only 1 church and all the creeds were similar

* all the rulers were ignorant

*His father was notary to mediocre


* Know for is nom de plume and his first book was Oedipe

* He made more that 20,000 letters

* He is known epigrams, rymes and audacity


* Almost every person of importance was his enemy at one point.

* When he got attacked he replied with pamphlets and epigrams

* when he was at peace he was uneasy at war.
