The translation of this early work by Jean Jacques Rousseau was originally published in 1889 and we are now republishing it. 'Profession of Faith of a Savoyard Vicar' was intended by Rousseau to be a defence of religion from the viewpoint of a humble Catholic vicar. The vicar's creed is Socinianism (or Unitarianism as it is called today). Because it rejected original sin and divine Revelation, both Protestant and Catholic authorities took offence. This publication also contains a piece by the South African novelist and political activist Olive Schreiner.
