This is the most important work of Pierre Bayle (1647-1706), a French Huguenot who fled to the Netherlands in 1681 and became a professor at the Illustrious College of Rotterdam. Bayle advocated religious tolerance and a strict separation of faith and science. The Dictionnaire historique et critique was originally published in 1697. This attractive, improved version appeared on the market in 1740.
