Lionel Baillemont’s play freely adapted from novels by Donatien Alphonse François de SADE: « La Philosophie dans le Boudoir (1795), Histoire de Juliette (1801), La Nouvelle Justine (1797) et Cahiers Personnels (1803) ». In the 18th century, the refusal of God had to be fought for brutally, using the limitless power of language to explode all of the prisons of mankind. Atheism, like libertinism, was held up in the name of human freedom.
