Autograph letter signed "victor hugo" to edgar quinet? [uptown house, guernesey], July 7, 1858? In-8° on blue glazed bisheet traces of period folds, slight transparent stain on the last sheet, small ink corrosions. Hugo vehemently claims his opposition to Protestantism, a symbol of narrowness and intolerance in angleterre.Hence the delay in my response. I take the keenest interest in the great questions indicated by you so valiantly addressed in your interesting newspaper. We disagree everywhere, not on the basis, freedom, but on the means, Protestantism.
I see him in angleterre, alas, narrow and intolerant, and deeply enemy of progress. Let's focus on philosophy.A letter is necessarily shortened and incomplete. You are a high spirit. I'll be happy if I'm ever given to talk with you about these high questions. This letter could be sent to edgar quinet. In 1858 he published an autobiographical book, history of my ideas, in which he associated the idea of Protestantism with the idea of progress. Victor Hugo since 1851, on the contrary, denounced the conservative role of Protestant religion, taking the example of angleterre. The two men, convinced Republicans, then lived in exile away from the imperial france. This item is in the category "collections\letters, old papers\autographs\others".
