Question[edit]

Does anybody know where John Toland's service was held (or where he went to service in Putney-London) or where he is buried ? Naoiseoh (talk) 13:23, 4 May 2008 (UTC)Naoise

You should ask such questions at WP:RD/H. Sandstein (talk) 13:58, 4 May 2008 (UTC)


Republican?[edit]

Everything written here, without exception, points to Toland being an arch-Monarchist. He supported the new Germanic kings of England and he supported the occupation of Ireland by the forces of the King. This makes him a monarchist NOT a Republican. And the last sentence, that he was born to early or too late, is simply unmotivated (not to mention unscientific) nonsense that does not belong in an encyclopaedia! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 79.97.125.38 (talk) 14:58, 19 November 2013 (UTC)

Literary hoax "The Treatise of the Three Imposters"[edit]

The statement that Toland wrote "The Treatise of the Three Imposters" is not referenced. Instead, he was accused of being a possible author; I will try to find the reference. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Roberto La Ferla (talkcontribs) 12:08, 11 September 2010 (UTC)

Good call. I have added "citation needed"-tags on the similar claim in Treatise of the Three Impostors. As far as I know several different versions of the work appeared in the first half of the 18th century, so claiming that "Toland wrote it" is false even if he did write one version of it. --Saddhiyama (talk) 13:03, 11 September 2010 (UTC)

There is simply no evidence that Toland wrote The Three Imposters.-- User:Broadman —Preceding undated comment added 21:04, 17 August 2011 (UTC).

It is not true that Toland wrote "The Treatise of the Three Imposters". This manuscript most certainly did exist, in latin. It is not known who wrote the manuscript. Whitneymannies (talk) 00:07, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

What is the source of the only known image of John Toland?[edit]

I'm really curious. - 70.179.80.120 (talk) 21:28, 8 May 2012 (UTC)
