Dom Calmet: Un itinéraire intellectuel

Long time ago I mentioned that the papers commemorating the 250th anniversary of Dom Calmet's death would get published. And indeed they have been back in late 2008 under the title Dom Augustin Calmet Un itinéraire intellectuel. The anthology is edited by Philippe Martin and Fabienne Henryot, and is available from Riveneuve at 26€. It includes a paper titled Dom Calmet, «historiographe des vampires»?, but otherwise looks like it sheds light on various parts of Calmet's life and work, so this is probably the best up to date book on Calmet.

It's probably a photo of Philippe Martin holding a copy of the book that you can find in this report from a meeting on the subject.
