"Histoire LitWraire de la France," for the "De re Diplomatica " and L'art de verifier les dates", for "L'antiquit^ expliqu^e et represents" and the ' ' Pateographia G rsca " , f or the " Recueil des historiens des Gaules ", the " Veterum scriptorum ampHssima col- lectio", the "Thesaurus Anecdotorum ", the"Spicile- gium veterum scriptorum", the "Museum ItaHcum", the " Voyage htteraire ", and numerous other works that are the fountlation of modern historical and liturgical studies.
