BIRCHAL, Telma de Souza. Faith, reason and belief in the "Apology for Raymond Sebon": are we Christians as we are Perigordines or Germans?.Translated byPaulo Pimenta Marques. Kriterion [online]. 2006, vol.2Selected edition, pp. 0-0. ISSN 0100-512X.

This paper analyzes Montaigne's concept of "faith", in comparison with the concepts of "reason" and "belief", in relation to the role assigned to authority by the author of the Essays. The paper discusses mainly the rather established claim that Montaigne's skepticism would reduce faith to the scope of customs and beliefs.

Keywords : Montaigne; Skepticism; Faith; Belief; Reason.
