Thomas Paine's home is on Rue de l'Odeon in Paris. It was here the philosopher/activist lived from 1797 to 1802. The French Revolution brought him to Paris in 1790, and he began writing and publishing the pamphlets supporting the revolution, Rights of Man in 1791 and The Age of Reason in 1794. The latter work was finished while he was jailed at Luxembourg Prison. By 1797 Paine found himself here, at the home of Nicholas Bonneville, a journalist/bookseller who was also an activist in the same vein as himslef. In 1800 Bonneville was jailed briefly, for making disparaging comments about Napoleon, then fled to his father's home in Evreux, where he was in watched constantly. Paine left Paris in 1802, taking Bonneville's wife and children with him, winding up at Paine's farm in New Rochelle, New York. Bonneville eventually rejoined his family in 1814, after the fall of Napoleon.
