Barbarism and Religion by J Pocock

Barbarism and Religion?- Edward Gibbon? own phrase - is the title of an acclaimed sequence of works by John Pocock designed to situate Gibbon, and his Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, in a series of contexts in the history of eighteenth-century Europe. This is a major intervention from one of the world? leading historians of ideas, challenging the notion of any one Enlightenment?and positing instead a plurality of enlightenments, of which the English was one. In this first volume, The Enlightenments of Edward Gibbon, John Pocock follows Gibbon through his youthful exile in Switzerland and his criticisms of the Encyclopdie, and traces the growth of his historical interests down to the conception of the Decline and Fall itself.
