This study examines the attitude to war expressed L by Voltaire in his published works and correspondence up to 1755. Voltaire's statements on war are considered under three headings: war and religion, the question of aggression, and war in dramatic literature. In each case an attempt is made to discern an evolution in his attitude over the period of study.
