In c.1725, Freret published Letter of Thrasybulus to Leucippus, which is stylized as an ancient Greco-Roman document from one friend to another, namely a fictional Thrasybulus to Leucippus, offering guidance in protecting him from the temptation of religion through rational comparison of religious belief.
