This is Volume 1 of 4. This volume is The Anti Christian Conspiracy. It examines the anti-Christian conspiracy that was begun by Voltaire in 1728. Barruel returned to the principal texts of the Enlightenment and found reasons to draw close links between the philosophism of the time and the anti-Christian campaigns of the Revolution. Here he found that the philosophers had created an age of pretend philosophy which they used in their battle with Christianity. Their commitment to liberty and equality were really commitments of "pride and revolt". Barruel claimed that the proponents of the Enlightenment led people into illusion and error. He alleged that Voltaire, d'Alembert, and Frederick II, the King of Prussia, planned the course of events that lead to the French Revolution.
