Limborch's variation and Popple's translation, as on if it is actual that Popple translated the Epistola into English 'a l'insu de Mr Locke', and as a result even if Locke was once wrong or right in announcing that the interpretation was once made 'without my privity'. lengthy study into files hitherto unpublished, or little recognized, or badly used, has persuaded me that Locke not just knew that Popple had undertaken to translate the Gouda Latin textual content, but additionally that Locke Popple's paintings very heavily, or even that the second one English variation of 1690 was once edited via Locke himself. In those situations it doesn't appear attainable to talk of an unique textual content, that during Latin, and an English translation; quite they're assorted types of Locke's concepts on Toleration. The accusations of unreliability levelled at Popple consequently fall to the floor, and the Latin and English texts gather equivalent rights to our belief, when you consider that they either deserve a similar position between Locke's works. as a result the expression 'without my privity', which a few humans had obvious as revealing an innate weak spot in Locke's ethical personality, reacquires its special which means: attesting to Locke's profound modesty and integrity.

Example text

I have already said that in a letter dated 6th May 1689 Limborch gave Locke the news that the Epistola had been published. D ] In the same letter Limborch promised to urge the booksellers to send copies of the Epistola and of De Pace Ecclesiastica by Samuel Strimesius to England as soon as possible; but that in the meantime he was trying to send Locke a few copies of both books by the first ship leaving for London. Having received them Locke thanked Limborch on 6th June: 'gratias tibi ago pro exemplaribus tractatus de Tolerantia et Pace Ecclesiastica quae mihi misisti'.

In comparing the two texts I found 136 variants, although for the most part the differences are slight. The present edition therefore does not reproduce either of these texts, but is based on a collation of both, with a view to establishing a version which is correct and accurate. This is not to say that I have made no amend[11 Still to be seen in the Bodleian Library, N. 67. Th. XLVI LETTER S CONCERNING TOLERATION BY IOIIN LOCKE L ONDON. PRINTED FOR A. M I LLAR. H. \'IOO D- FALL. WHITE. I. R I VINGTON, L.

Ul Indeed I venture to go so far as to suggest that when his secret had been revealed Locke decided to prepare personally a second edition of the Letter [21 intended, after Proast's attack, for wider circulation. This edition would include the amendments which Locke, a scrupulous editor,[31 thought necessary, but which Popple could no more include on his own initiative. In any case it seems that the change in the codicil to Locke's will as quoted by John Churchill was not an irresponsible omission, but rather a timely clarification of fact which Locke himself seemed to have intended to remain unclarified.
