Medlin. “André Morellet’s Theological Articles for the ‘Encyclopédie’: Text and Subtext.” Diderot Studies, vol. 26, Librairie Droz, 1995, pp. 89–107. JSTOR, https://www.jstor.org/stable/40372760.
Following the death of the Abbé Mallet in 1755, André Morellet became the primary contributor for religious matters; however, he appeared to emphasize philosophy more than actual theology. Doig and Medlin analyze the articles written by Morellet and discuss their content, the public response to them, and how they fit within what we know of his personal beliefs. The authors also briefly discuss Morellet’s later relations with the Encyclopédie even after he officially stopped contributing.
