Overview

This is the first ever English rendition of the classic statement of divine right absolutism in French, published in 1707 when the power and glory of the French ancien r'egime was at its zenith. Patrick Riley has provided full supporting materials including a chronology, guide to further reading and brief notes on persons mentioned, in addition to a lucid introduction placing Bossuet's bibliocentric politics in their historical and intellectual context. This volume makes a major scholarly contribution to the series Cambrige Texts in the History of Political Thought, and is the first in what will be an occasional sub-series of library editions of important but inaccessible texts, published in hardcover editions for a specialist audience.
