Francis Atterbury (1662-1732), Bishop of Rochester and Dean of Westminster, is seen as one of the greatest Churchmen of the latter part of the 17th century and the first two decades of the 18th. Exiled as a traitor to Europe in 1724, he spent the rest of his life in France and died in Paris. While Atterbury's political correspondence has been edited and published, his literary correspondence has been practically ignored. Much of the latter disappeared during the revolutionary upheavals, but enough remains to form some idea of his literary tastes and critical faculties. This work is an edition of his correspondence with Thieriot (a friend of Voltaire), the Marquis de Caumont, and Charles Rollin.
