Helyot made lengthy journeys throughout Europe, which afforded him ample opportunity to collect material for his great work on the religious orders.

Being written on scientific principles, though not always with critical insight, it was very favourably received, and achieved a wide circulation (Catholic Ency.). Vols 1-5 by Helyot and vols 6-8 generally attributed to Maximilien Bullot.Artists and Engravers: The author of this work is Pierre Helyot / Father Hyppolyte Helyot (1660-1716). Engravers include P.
