It is hard to exaggerate the importance of Jansenism as a religious phenomenon in European life, and yet during the 17th century its followers denied its very existence. Jansenism, and the theology of Cornelius Jansen, powerfully infused French political life from the mid 17th century to the Revolution 150 years later. It impacted on the Enlightenment, the development of French constitutional thinking, the modernisation of the Catholic church and the destruction of the Jesuits. Professor Doyle's book explains why Jansenism was so important, it recreates the religious and intellectual world which fostered it and examines the critical issues, such as the all-pervasive role of the Jesuits in European Catholic life.
