Chapter Summary

In this article Luise Gottsched’s sympathies with freethinking and deism are investigated in the following texts: her 15-page ‘revision’ of Terrasson’s Philosophie (1756); the satire, Horatii (1739/40); her translation of and introduction to Der Freydenker (1742); her tragedy, Panthea (1744). The catalogue of her library and consideration of her early years in Danzing offer support for this characterization of her work.
