Abstract

In June 2006 delegates from eight countries representing six French, US, and British-based learned societies met at St Catherine's College, Oxford, for a conference on the French long seventeenth century entitled 'Modernites/Modernities'. Twenty of the best papers on religion, ethics and history were selected for this volume, and they present new perspectives on topics as diverse as devotion and pornography, artifice and the pursuit of truth, Bruscambille and Pascal, historiography from the sixteenth century to Voltaire, and, of course, the Querelle des Anciens et des Modernes.
