This volume opens with Locke's Letter Concerning Toleration (1689) and also contains his earlier Essay Concerning Toleration (1667), extracts from the Third Letter for Toleration (1692), and a large body of his briefer essays and memoranda on this theme. As editor Mark Goldie writes in the introduction, A Letter Concerning Toleration "was one of the seventeenth century's most eloquent pleas to Christians to renounce religious persecution."

This Liberty Fund edition provides the first fully annotated modern edition of A Letter Concerning Toleration , offering the reader explanatory guidance to Locke's rich reservoir of references and allusions.
