The Dictionnaire philosophique (Philosophical Dictionary) is an encyclopedic dictionary published by Voltaire in 1764. It is alphabetically ordered. Although this order helps readers more easily find articles, this was not meant to be a dictionary or encyclopaedia. In this as in his other works, Voltaire is very concerned about the injustices of the Catholic Church, which he sees as intolerant and fanatical.
