The Age of Louis XIV By VOLTAIRE
eBook (ePub): $2.99
VOLTAIRE The Age of Louis XIV Voltaire's "History of the Age of Louis XIV.," was published when its author (see p. 259), long famous, was the companion of Frederick the Great in... More > Prussia--from 1750 to 1753. Voltaire was in his twentieth year when the Grand Monarque died. Louis XIV. had succeeded his father at the age of five years, in 1643; his nominal reign covered seventy-one years, and throughout the fifty-three years which followed Mazarin's death his declaration "L'État c'est moi" had been politically and socially a truth. He controlled France with an absolute sway; under him she achieved a European ascendency without parallel save in the days of Napoleon. He sought to make her the dictator of Europe. But for William of Orange, Marlborough, and Eugene, he would have succeeded. Politically he did not achieve his aim; but under him France became the unchallenged leader of literary and artistic culture and taste, the universal criterion.< Less
Princes and Poisoners : Studies of the Court of Louis XIV (Illustrated) By Frantz Funck-Brentano
eBook (ePub): $1.99
In his former book, M. Funck-Brentano solved once for all the mystery of the Man in the Iron Mask, showed up the impostor Latude in his true colours, and gave us surprising information about the... More > latter days of the Bastille. In the present volume, the fruit of several years’ research among the archives at the Arsenal Library, he conclusively dispels the cloud of suspicion that has hung over the sudden death of Charles I’s winsome and ill-fated daughter Henrietta; gives us for the first time the authentic history of that beautiful poisoner Madame de Brinvilliers; suggests a very plausible explanation of Racine’s hitherto inexplicable retirement from dramatic writing; and throws a strange light upon the private history of Madame de Montespan and other fair ladies of Louis XIV’s Court.< Less

Princes and Poisoners: Studies of the Court of Louis XIV By Frantz Funck-Brentano

TWELVE months ago I had the honour of introducing M. Frantz Funck-Brentano to the English public by my translation of his Legendes et Archives de la Bastille, and in my preface to that book I gave a... More > rapid sketch of his career which need not be repeated. If history is to be continually reconstructed, or rather, perhaps, to undergo a process of destructive distillation, there is no one more competent than M. Funck-Brentano to perform the feat. We lose our illusions with our teeth; the fables that charmed our childhood dissolve in the modern historian's test-tube, and the mysteries that fascinated our forebears become clear with a few drops of his critical acid. In his former book, M. Funck-Brentano solved once for all the mystery of the Man in the Iron Mask, showed up the impostor Latude in his true colours, and gave us surprising information about the latter days of the Bastille.< Less

Un Sermon sous Louis XIV By Félix Bungener
eBook (PDF): $3.34
Félix Bungener (1814-1874) a introduit dans la littérature évangélique une idée neuve et astucieuse : se servir de l'Histoire pour exposer les formes et les buts de... More > l'éloquence de la chaire chrétienne. Ainsi l'auteur atteint un double but : il nous divertit en nous transportant à Versailles, à l'époque du grand siècle, et nous instruit sur ses conceptions homilétiques, c-à-d sur l'art de prêcher. Fiction historique d'une grande authenticité, dans les anecdotes et les caractères des personnages, son Sermon sous Louis XIV, connut de nombreuses rééditions. Succès qui s'explique, non seulement par la qualité du texte, mais encore par sa définitive originalité, un peu facétieuse : imaginer le catholique Bourdaloue se faisant dicter une partie de son sermon devant être prêché devant le roi, par le protestant Claude de Charenton ! Du point de vue spirituel, ce récit apporte un encouragement aux prédicateurs, à annoncer tout le conseil de Dieu, sans crainte des grands ; tel Paul devant le roi Agrippa, et...< Less
