Summary:
During the Gilded Age, Ingersoll raised his voice on behalf of Enlightenment reason, secularism, and the separation of church and state with a vigor unmatched since America's revolutionary generation. Jacoby restores Ingersoll to his rightful place in an American intellectual tradition, as public figure who devoted his life to liberty of conscience belonging to the religious and nonreligious alike.
