Most of the Letters to a Skeptic of Religion appeared in the magazine The Society. In them, as its title announces, it reflects on religion and its validity in nineteenth-century Spain.
In 1843 Jaime Balmes founded this magazine in Barcelona, in which he published articles on the social, political and religious demands of his time and these letters. The first one begins as follows:

“My dear friend: You have given me a difficult task in your esteemed opinion, speaking to me of scepticism: this is the problem of the age, the capital, dominant question, which rises above all others, like the lofty cypress among faint bushes. What do I think of skepticism; What concept do I form of the present situation of the human spirit, so touched by this disease? What are the likely results of the cause of religion? All this you want me to tell you; To all these questions you demand a full and satisfactory answer; adding that ‘perhaps in this way the darkness of his understanding will be somewhat clarified, and he will be ready to enter again under the rule of faith’”.

As can be seen in this quotation, the Letters to a Skeptic in the Field of Religion attempt to resolve the dilemmas that most profoundly shook the author.
