By Mara van der Lugt

Bayle, Jurieu and the Dictionnaire Historique et Critique offers a brand new research of Pierre Bayle's Dictionnaire Historique et Critique (1696), with distinct connection with Bayle's polemical engagement with the theologian Pierre Jurieu. whereas contemporary years have visible a surge of curiosity in Bayle, there's as but no consensus on how one can interpret Bayle's ambiguous stance on cause and faith, and the way to make feel of the Dictionnaire: although
specific elements of the Dictionnaire have got a lot scholarly cognizance, the paintings has not often been studied as an entire, and little is understood approximately how the Dictionnaire was once encouraged by way of Bayle's polemic with Jurieu.

This quantity goals to set up a brand new technique for studying the Dictionnaire, lower than a twin premise: first, that the paintings can in simple terms be rightly understood whilst positioned in the fast context of its construction within the 1690s; moment, that it is just via an appreciation of the mechanics of the paintings as an entire, and of the position performed through its structural and stylistic particularities, that we will be able to reach a suitable interpretation of its components. unique consciousness is paid to the heated
theological-political clash among Bayle and Jurieu within the 1690s, which had a profound effect at the undertaking of the dictionary and on numerous of its significant issues, akin to the tensions within the dating among the highbrow sphere of the Republic of Letters and the political nation, but in addition the danger
of spiritual fanaticism spurring intolerance and conflict. the ultimate chapters show that Bayle's conflict with Jurieu used to be additionally one of many using forces at the back of Bayle's mirrored image at the challenge of evil; they reveal the essentially complicated nature of either Bayle's theological organization with Jurieu, and his self-defence within the moment version of the Dictionnaire.
