Locke's 'Second Treatise of Government' (1689) is one of the great classics of political philosophy, widely regarded as the foundational text of modern liberalism. Published in the same year, 'A Letter Concerning Toleration' aimed to end Christianity's wars of religion and called for the separation of church and state so that everyone could enjoy freedom of conscience. In this edition of these two major works, Mark Goldie considers the contested nature of Locke's reputation, which is often appropriated by opposing political and religious ideologies.
