Without the two supplementary volumes.& & Calmet (1672-1757) was a French Benedictine scholar and teacher of philosophy and theology. ""The erudition of Calmet's exegetical writings won him a reputation that was not confined to the Roman Catholic Church, but they have failed to stand the test of modern scholarship... His Dictionnaire historique is among the most noteworthy [and] as a pioneer in a branch of Biblical study, which received wide development in the 19th century, Calmet is worthy of remembrance"" (EB-11). & & Calmet was the first to refrain from giving allegorical interpretations, confining himself to only the literal. The work was originally published in French in 2 volumes in 1722, and the supplement in 1728.& & This edition not in Graesse or Vancil."
