The works of Voltaire : a contemporary version by Voltaire( Book )

82 editions published between 1901 and 2008 in English and held by 820 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Philosophical Dictionary was published in 1764 and was Voltaire's lengthiest work. A life-long project by the author, The Dictionary contains a series of alphabetically arranged articles about topics from Abraham to Morality to Prussia to Youth. The articles were oftentimes critical of people and institutions like the Roman Catholic Church. It is because of these criticisms that Voltaire chose to publish the work anonymously. The volatile nature of the book also led Voltaire to use a different publisher to ensure his complete anonymity. Contrary to the name, A Philosophical Dictionary is not meant to be read as a series of separate articles like the reference book. Voltaire meant for the articles to be read as a group that provide support for his main idea: discontent with current social and political affairs. The book was wildly popular with the public, and the first edition quickly sold out. Rulers of the time like Frederick II of Prussia and Catherine the Great were public supporters of the title. Religious authorities, however, were not as enthusiastic about the text's messages. The Dictionary was censored in several countries including Switzerland and France, where the books were gathered and burned in the streets
