By Mara van der Lugt

Bayle, Jurieu and the Dictionnaire Historique et Critique provides a brand new learn of Pierre Bayle's Dictionnaire Historique et Critique (1696), with certain connection with Bayle's polemical engagement with the theologian Pierre Jurieu. whereas contemporary years have noticeable a surge of curiosity in Bayle, there's as but no consensus on find out how to 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 obtained a lot scholarly consciousness, the paintings has not often been studied as an entire, and little is understood approximately how the Dictionnaire used to be motivated 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 merely be rightly understood while put in the speedy context of its creation within the 1690s; moment, that it's only via an appreciation of the mechanics of the paintings as an entire, and of the function performed through its structural and stylistic particularities, that we will reach a suitable interpretation of its components. exact consciousness is paid to the heated
theological-political clash among Bayle and Jurieu within the 1690s, which had a profound impact at the venture of the dictionary and on a number of of its significant topics, resembling the tensions within the courting among the highbrow sphere of the Republic of Letters and the political kingdom, but in addition the danger
of non secular fanaticism spurring intolerance and conflict. the ultimate chapters reveal that Bayle's conflict with Jurieu used to be additionally one of many riding forces in the back of Bayle's mirrored image at the challenge of evil; they divulge the essentially problematical nature of either Bayle's theological organization with Jurieu, and his self-defence within the moment version of the Dictionnaire.
