EDITORIAL NOTES

BIBLIOGRAPHICAL NOTE: A complete bibliography of Bayle's writings, and a selected list of related contemporary works and of modern writings on Bayle, can be found in Howard Robinson, Bayle the Sceptic ( New York, 1931), which is also the best study of Bayle in English. The editors have found Dr. Robinson's book extremely valuable in the preparation of this volume. The first edition of the Dictionnaire historique et critique appeared in 1697; it was published in Rotterdam, as was the expanded second edition in 1702, the last that appeared in Bayle's lifetime. The first edition in English was published in London in 1710. The edition used for this work is the second English edition, which appeared in five folio volumes in London from 1734 to 1738, and to which is prefaced a Life of Bayle by his friend Des Maiseaux. The definitive edition is the French edition by Beuchot, which appeared in sixteen octavo volumes in Paris in 1820. Bayle's other writings have been collected in four folio volumes of Oeuvres diverses. The first edition appeared from 1727 to 1731 in The Hague and Rotterdam; the second in The Hague in 1737. The best modern study of Bayle, dealing with all aspects of his thought, is J. Delvolvé, Religion critique et philosophie positive chez Pierre Bayle ( Paris, 1906). For a good treatment of the position of Bayle in the general history of the Enlightenment, see Ernst Cassirer, The Philosophy of the Enlightenment ( Princeton University Press, 1951).

A NOTE ON THE PRINCIPLES FOLLOWED IN EDITING THIS VOLUME: The texts of the articles used in this volume have been taken from the English edition of the Dictionary which appeared in the years 1734-38. This translation has been checked with the definitive French edition by Beuchot, and some corrections made. In addition, some spellings and grammatical constructions have been modernized, wherever it was
