Absolutely mind-blowing. This book changed the way I think about the Enlightenment. An outstanding resource. A few minor errors here and there, but I believe Melanson researched and wrote this entirely on his own, while juggling several other full-time engagements. One hopes this book will be updated regularly as new information becomes available.

Very interesting to see how the vatican has labelled this group over the centuries which is as usual, a big load of shit.
