As a young Jewish man in 17th century Amsterdam, Baruch de Spinoza excelled as a theological student; but as he encountered free-thinking Protestants, atheists, and radicals in this relatively tolerant city, he began to question his religion and the nature of God. As a result, he was branded a heretic and faced excommunication.

An L.A. Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring: Matthew Wolf as Baruch de Spinoza; Edward Asner as Abraham van Valkenburgh; Richard Easton as Saul Levi Mortera; Andrea Gabriel as Clara; Arye Gross as Ben Israel; Amy Pietz as Rebekah; James Wagner as Simon de Vries.

Directed by Rosalind Ayres. Recorded before a live audience at the Skirball Cultural Center, Los Angeles.

    " Excellent play and introduction to life and ideas of Baruch de Spinoza - much more accessible than Spinoza'a own modern but abstruse philosophy. "

    " Listened to the audiobook because I couldn't find a hard copy. The script is great; the presentation isn't. "

    " A joy to own this play which I thoroughly enjoyed and to know someone else had really gotten the wonder of Spinoza and his God-intoxicatedness. "
