BOLL 2: Vicesimus Knox, “Universal Peace” (1793)

This is part of “The Best of the Online Library of Liberty” which is a collection of some of the most important material in the OLL. This one comes from Vicesimus Knox’s sermon “The Prospect of Perpetual and Universal Peace” which he gave as the war being fought against the French republic was gearing up. He reminded his listeners of the Christian admonition “peace on earth, goodwill towards men.”
