Bayle, Jurieu and the Dictionnaire Historique et Critique provides a brand new research of Pierre Bayle's Dictionnaire Historique et Critique (1696), with specific 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 find out 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 awareness, the paintings has hardly ever been studied as an entire, and little is understood approximately how the Dictionnaire was once encouraged through 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 merely be rightly understood while positioned in the fast context of its creation within the 1690s; moment, that it's only via an appreciation of the mechanics of the paintings as a complete, and of the position performed by way of its structural and stylistic particularities, that we will be able to reach a suitable interpretation of its elements. precise 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 a number of of its significant topics, 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 spiritual fanaticism spurring intolerance and battle. the ultimate chapters exhibit 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 tricky nature of either Bayle's theological organization with Jurieu, and his self-defence within the moment version of the Dictionnaire.
