The article covers Locke's discussion of things indifferent, or adiaphora, considering texts from his early authoritarian Two Tracts on Government to the Epistola de Tolerantia.

The article shows the persistent presence of this notion in Locke's writings. Additionally, its use in the aforementioned fields is explored, and its relevance for understanding Locke's conception of toleration is stressed.
