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”.
