We were delighted to hear that President Macron received from King Charles III a complete edition of Voltaire’s writings edited by Hall Emeritus Fellow and Director of the Voltaire Foundation, Oxford, Professor Nicholas Cronk on Wednesday 20 September during the King’s state visit to France.

Started in 1968, the complete works, comprising 205 volumes, was only completed in April 2022 and included Letters on the English, a series of essays by the French Enlightenment writer and philosopher, based on his experiences living in Britain between 1726 and 1729.
