Résumé

This presentation deals with the digital edition of D’Alembert’s eulogy of Bossuet. This text is highly difficult to edit since we have to cope with a printed edition published in two stages and two successive manuscript versions showing various types and levels of corrections. We will explain first these editorial issues and the research problems they are connected to. Then we will expose the way a digital edition could better bring solutions than a traditional printed edition through a series of features showing the genesis process of the text, from the manuscripts to the published versions. Finally we will present some software which makes it possible to edit this text as well as other eulogies with similar characteristics.

He is the author of a book about the exchanges of pamphlets between the French “philosophes” and their adversaries from 1750 to 1770, published in SVEC (2007:03). He contributes to the edition of the complete works of Voltaire (Voltaire Foundation) and of D’Alembert. He is an Assistant Professor at the University of Lyon and a member of the Institut universitaire de France. 

Alexandre Guilbaud is an historian of mathematics, specializing in the 18th century.
