SUMMARYA close analysis of the Bavarian periodical Parnassus Boicus (1722-1740) discloses several aspects of interest to the linguistic historian. Besides a polemical and proto-nationalistic view of German as a language for heroes, the editors defended, against the French-oriented critical stance à la Gottsched which was-beginning to have the upper hand, a marked sympathy for periodic syntax, which they claimed as most natural to German, as well as a strong preference for the chancery style.RÉSUMÉQuand on analyse de près le périodique Bavarois Parnassus Boicus (1722-1740) on remarque des aspects de theorie du langage et du style qui devraient interesser l'historien de la langue et de la linguistique. En polemi-que contre la position francophile de Gottsched, qui commençait a s'impo-ser en Allemagne, les redacteurs defendaient ce qu'ils concevoient comme le style le plus naturel a la langue allemande, c'est-a-dire la phrase periodique et le style bureaucratique des chancelleries. A leur avis, l'allemand etait par sa nature et par sa tradition une langue faite pour des heros.
