By Mara van der Lugt

Bayle, Jurieu and the Dictionnaire Historique et Critique offers a brand new learn of Pierre Bayle's Dictionnaire Historique et Critique (1696), with specified connection with Bayle's polemical engagement with the theologian Pierre Jurieu. whereas fresh years have visible a surge of curiosity in Bayle, there's as but no consensus on tips on how to interpret Bayle's ambiguous stance on cause and faith, and the way to make experience of the Dictionnaire: although
specific components of the Dictionnaire have bought a lot scholarly realization, the paintings has rarely been studied as a complete, 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 process for examining the Dictionnaire, lower than a twin premise: first, that the paintings can basically be rightly understood whilst put in the speedy context of its construction 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 by means of its structural and stylistic particularities, that we will be able to reach a suitable interpretation of its elements. specified awareness is paid to the heated
theological-political clash among Bayle and Jurieu within the 1690s, which had a profound impact at the undertaking of the dictionary and on numerous of its significant topics, 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 exhibit 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 challenging nature of either Bayle's theological organization with Jurieu, and his self-defence within the moment variation of the Dictionnaire.
