By Mara van der Lugt

Bayle, Jurieu and the Dictionnaire Historique et Critique provides a brand new examine of Pierre Bayle's Dictionnaire Historique et Critique (1696), with targeted connection with Bayle's polemical engagement with the theologian Pierre Jurieu. whereas fresh years have noticeable a surge of curiosity in Bayle, there's as but no consensus on easy methods to interpret Bayle's ambiguous stance on cause and faith, and the way to make experience of the Dictionnaire: although
specific elements of the Dictionnaire have bought a lot scholarly recognition, the paintings has infrequently been studied as an entire, and little is understood approximately how the Dictionnaire was once prompted via Bayle's polemic with Jurieu.

This quantity goals to set up a brand new strategy for analyzing the Dictionnaire, below a twin premise: first, that the paintings can basically be rightly understood whilst positioned in the instant context of its construction within the 1690s; moment, that it is just via an appreciation of the mechanics of the paintings as a complete, and of the function performed via its structural and stylistic particularities, that we will be able to reach a suitable interpretation of its components. unique awareness 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 numerous of its significant subject matters, similar to the tensions within the dating among the highbrow sphere of the Republic of Letters and the political country, but in addition the danger
of spiritual fanaticism spurring intolerance and struggle. the ultimate chapters reveal that Bayle's conflict with Jurieu was once additionally one of many riding forces in the back of Bayle's mirrored image at the challenge of evil; they disclose the essentially frustrating nature of either Bayle's theological organization with Jurieu, and his self-defence within the moment version of the Dictionnaire.
