Two books by Bradley Prize recipient Alan Charles Kors will soon be forthcoming from Cambridge University Press.  Kors is the Henry Charles Lee Professor of History at the University of Pennsylvania.

Naturalism and Unbelief in France, 1650-1729 is the long-awaited sequel to his classic Atheism in France, 1650-1729.  The sequel shows how the development of atheism in 18th Century France emerged from philosophical and theological disagreements between different schools of orthodox theologians.  Modern atheism, Kors argues, is largely the unintended end result of these debates.

Kors' Epicureans and Atheists in France, 1650-1729 brings to life both early-modern French Christian learned culture and the atheists who emerged from its intellectual vitality.
