Bossuet: Politics Drawn from the Very Words of Holy Scripture

Εξώφυλλο
Cambridge University Press, 1990 - 415 σελίδες
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 régime 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.
