About the Book

About the Book: 

In 1767, Voltaire turned 73 and, despite precarious health, continued to write, publish and edit an astounding catalogue of works, leading to four volumes of the Œuvres complètes de Voltaire being dedicated to his output from this time. This volume contains the historical burlesque poem ‘La Guerre civile de Genève’, dialogues on Marmontel’s Bélisaire, which had recently swept Paris with controversy over questions of tolerance and pagan salvation, a debate which Voltaire happily entered further with the Lettre à Cogé. Theological criticism also generated one of the best examples of Voltairean irony, the Diner du comte de Boulainvilliers, an anonymously published pamphlet satirizing Catholicism.
