Paperback Published: 01/01/1994
- Not available
In the course of his long reign (1642-1715), Louis XIV left such an imprint on France, and indeed on all of Europe, that Voltaire dubbed this period "the age of Louis XIV." Andrew Lossky has written a comprehensive political biography of Louis XIV. Louis's obsession with breaking the Spanish encirclement of France embroiled western Europe in wars for more than a quarter century. His political confrontations with ecclesiastical authorities had a decisive influence on church-state relations in France. This biography will be crucial reading for anyone interested in Louis XIV and the history, politics, and culture of France.
