Wernick provides here a summary of the Encyclopédie, inspired by an exhibition run by the Bibliothèque Nationale, covering all important details related to its conception, creation and publishing. Even touching on contributors, context, problems (censorship, accusation of plagiarism, etc.), and its ultimate reach and influence, Wernick’s article is a resource for researchers looking for a brief, yet saturated summary of the important aspects and effects of the grand work that is the Encyclopédie.
