Jacques-Bénigne Bossuet
Histoire des variations des Eglises protestantes. (suivi de) Avertissements aux protestans sur les lettres du ministre Jurieu contre l'histoire des variations
- Chez Guillaume Desprez, à Paris 1740, duodecimo (10x17.3cm), xxxiij (7) 509pp. (27) and (8) 510pp. (34) and (16) 364pp. and (22) 328pp.,
4 hardcover volumes, new edition, after the quarto original published in 1688.
.
The “Avertissemens” were added to this edition to complete it. Full marbled blond calfskin bindings. Spine with 5 raised bands adorned with small embossings. Title and volume number labels.

A nice copy, very fresh inside, slightly blunt corners, one levelled crown.


One of Bossuet's major works, in which the author summarises the controversies against the Protestant church with a key concept: variation. The multiple destinies and variations around the same doctrine must show us that the Protestant church cannot be the church of Christ and the depositary of the faith. The "avertissemens" is a response to Pierre Jurieu's attacks in defence of the Protestants against Bossuet's book.

This work, remarkable for its abundance of details on the evolution of religious dogmas, was frequently cited by Catholics as the essential reference in their quarrels with Protestants.

The first two volumes are devoted to the “Histoire des Variations”, the next two to the 6 “avertissemens”.
