“I have only made this letter longer because I have not had the time to make it shorter.”

― Blaise Pascal, The Provincial Letters

 

The “Provincial Letters” by Blaise Pascal are a collection of letters in defense of Antoine Arnauld, a Jansenist who was condemned for heresy. Because of the content and nature of the letters, Pascal wrote them under a pseudonym of Louis de Montalte and added satire, humor, and wit to them to further himself from the letters. Pascal addresses controversial subject matter including witchcraft, magic, sorcery, and justification of assassinations.
