St. Croix (M. le Baron de).

Recherches Historiques et Critiques sur les

Mystères du paganisme, 2de édition, revue et corrigée. Paris, 1817, 2 vols. 8vo.

The first edition of this learned work is extremely rare; it was published by M. de Villoison, with the title of “ Mémoires pour servir à l'histoire de la religion secrète des anciens peuples." Paris, 1784, 1 vol. 8vo.

SUPERVILLE (Daniel de).

Sermons, sur divers Textes de l'Ecriture

Sainte Rotterdam, 1726, 4 vols. 8vo.

“Of all the Sermons in French, he had seen," says Kippis, in speaking of Doddridge's early life," he gave the preference to those of Superville. Ile especially excels in the beauty of his imagery, descriptions, and similies, and some of the most pathetic expostulations I ever saw."

TABARAUD (11. de).

Histoire Critique de l'Assemblée générale du

Clergé de France en 1682, et de la déclaration des quatre articles qui y furent adoptés ; suivie du discours de M. L'Abbé Fleury, sur les libertés de l'Eglise Gallicane; avec des notes, &c. Paris, 1826, 8vo. “ This new work, by M. Tabaraud, is eminently serviceable to the cause of religion and society. We had no complete history of the Assembly of the Clergy, in 1682; a deficiency ably made up by this interesting work. This critical History is rendered doubly valuable by the manner in which it is executed." Revue Ency. vol. 32, p. 727.

TillEMONT (L. S. le Nain de). Mémoires pour servir à l'Histoire Ecclésiastique

des six premiers siècles. Paris, 1693-1712, 16 vols. 4to. “ Tillemont's two great labours are thus called : Mémoires pour servir à l'Histoire ecclésiastique des six premiers sièeles ; and Histoire des Empereurs et des autres Princes qui ont régné durant les six premiers siècles de l'Eglise, Paris, 1700-38, 6 volumes, quarto Both works, and more especially the former, are full of prodigious learning ; but after the labour of forty years, Tillemont has given us only the history of the first six centuries of the Church. Gibbons obligations to him are constantly and gratefully expressed, and Jortin seems to have consulted him yet more than Fleury."-Dibdin's Library Companion, p.101. -See Picot.
