Even though the Catholic church officially remained staunchly opposed to the freedoms expressed in the Encyclopédie, many educated clergy members chose to contribute articles, becoming a part of what we now call the Catholic Enlightenment. Frail’s goal in writing this article is to update prior studies on those who were associated with the Catholic Church and who were also contributors to the Encyclopédie; he focuses on fifteen specific authors, giving brief biographical information and cataloguing the articles written by each.
