Sophie Volland

Alternative Name(s) Louise Henriette Volland
Date 1716 - 1784
Biographical NotesLouise Henriette Volland was given the name 'Sophie' by her friend, lover, and correspondence partner Diderot, who admired her wisdom. Between 1755 and 1784 (the year both Volland and Diderot died), an extensive exchange of letters took place between the two. However, while 187 of Diderot's 553 letters to 'Sophie' have survived, Volland's letters in reply are all lost.
