Dictionnaire historique et critique de Pierre Bayle (17th century): Pierre Bayle's Dictionnaire historique et critique stands as the supreme achievement of one of the seventeenth century's most prominent men of letters. Originally conceived as a response to the errors in Louis Moréri's Grand dictionnaire historique, his Dictionnaire grew to be an exemplary work of critical methodology. The ARTFL Project offers here a facsimile version of the 1740 edition.
