GdF's first real recognition in the outside world of academia, the prize-winning entry for a competition on a dissertation “Sur l'esprit et le but de l'Institution”, commissioned by the Committee of the Protestant Bible Society of Paris from their general meeting of April 16, 1823.

Coquerel describes it: “This is not a mere academic note, but a complete and very remarkable book. I do not know anything better written on the great and important question of Bible societies… I have followed Mr. Félice with the greatest interest, in his historical and moral discussions on the political influence of the Holy Books.”

Swedish translation: Försök öfver bibelsällskaps-inrättningens anda och ändamål, Stockholm : P.A. Norstedt & Söner, 1842. (2 uppl.)
