This paper compares two programmes of historical criticism at the end of the16th Century – Jean Mabillon’s diplomatics and Richard Simon’s biblical criticism. Although they were both conceived as philological and contextual reconstruction of texts, their relation with the authority of the texts and their engagement with political and institutional stakes were strikingly different.

Keywords: historical criticism, Richard Simon, Jean Mabillon, Theological-Political Treatise
