Le Siècle des Lumières : bibliographie chronologique

T. XXIII, 1788

0.00 CHF tax incl.

When Buffon died in 1788, two biographies celebrated his life. Rousseau and Voltaire, who had both disappeared ten years earlier, were still very much present in people’s memory. There were numerous French translations of English and German books. Religion remained a major preoccupation. Collections of sermons and other edifying books were published in answer to the demand. Protestants enjoyed equal civil rights and a large measure of religious freedom. In order to reform the justice system and to limit the political role of parliaments, the king decided to create a new institution, the plenary court. The project was violently opposed, so the king abandoned the idea and announced that the States General would be called earlier than planned, in 1789.
