The Complete Works of Voltaire: 1967-2016 – an insider’s view, by John Renwick.
Ed. Graham Gargett and Alain Sandrier
In 1768, Voltaire produced a variety of works taking issue with the Catholic Church, targeting in particular its perceived superstition and doctrine, and advocating peace and tolerance.
Ed. David Williams, Helder Mendes-Baiao et al.
In 1765, in order to make up a third volume for the Nouveaux Mélanges, the first two volumes of which had appeared at the initiative of the printer Gabriel Cramer, Voltaire composed a number of short texts on subjects of perennial importance to him: politics, philosophy, religion, literature, history… This volume of the Complete works gathers together all of these short pieces for which volume three of the Nouveaux Mélanges was the original edition. Presenting these short texts as a collection enables readers to see for the first time the echoes that give them a certain coherence as an ensemble.
