1783 - Dictionaire Historique, Critique, Chronologique, Géographique... de la Bible

Author: Augustin Calmet

Book: On the title page it says ‘Nouvelle Édition’, in English ‘New Edition’. We would like to point out that we have previously shown a similar dictionary, published in 1756, (see our page ‘books’). This edition is written in 1783 and is published after the death of the writer (posthumously). The writer named ‘Révérend Pere Dom Augustin Calmet’ (1672-1757) was a Roman Catholic theologian, scientist and abbot.

Interesting in this edition is that besides the form ‘Jehovah’ it also uses other names that refer to God.
