This chapter explores the life of William Hone. It pays particular attention to his thought as a freethinker, parodist, and alleged blasphemer that led to his famous trials. His atheist phase was influenced by Baron d’Holbach’s System of Nature. It then goes on to explore the contours of his reconversion and his later Christian thought.

Keywords:   William Hone, freethought, parody, blasphemy, atheism, Baron d’Holbach, reconversion, Christianity
