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 designated connection with Bayle's polemical engagement with the theologian Pierre Jurieu. whereas contemporary years have obvious a surge of curiosity in Bayle, there's as but no consensus on tips 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 obtained a lot scholarly cognizance, the paintings has hardly ever been studied as a complete, and little is understood approximately how the Dictionnaire used to be prompted through Bayle's polemic with Jurieu.

This quantity goals to set up a brand new technique for examining the Dictionnaire, less than a twin premise: first, that the paintings can basically be rightly understood while put in the quick 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 position performed by means of its structural and stylistic particularities, that we will reach a suitable interpretation of its components. detailed realization is paid to the heated
theological-political clash among Bayle and Jurieu within the 1690s, which had a profound impression at the venture of the dictionary and on numerous of its significant subject matters, similar to the tensions within the courting among the highbrow sphere of the Republic of Letters and the political nation, but in addition the danger
of non secular fanaticism spurring intolerance and warfare. the ultimate chapters exhibit that Bayle's conflict with Jurieu was once additionally one of many riding forces at the back of Bayle's mirrored image at the challenge of evil; they reveal the essentially difficult nature of either Bayle's theological organization with Jurieu, and his self-defence within the moment version of the Dictionnaire.
