About the Author

Anthony D. Wright, University of Leeds, UK.


'Scholars interested in conflicts between regular and secular clergy will ... find here a wealth of new material... Recommended.' Choice 'The Divisions of French Catholicism succeeds in underscoring the profound disunity among Catholic reformers in early and mid-seventeenth-century France. The book will especially interest scholars of the Catholic Reformation, French Catholicism, Jansenism, and the Jesuits.' Sixteenth Century Journal 'For Wright, the Jansenist dichotomy of true and false orthodoxy, in which they were the champions of legitimate doctrine, was fatally destructive of the original Devot vision of an all-Catholic France. Targeted towards the specialist in seventeenth-century French Catholic history, this work repays close attention, because it provides a thorough examination of the disintegration of this vision as the Devots identified the enemies that they feared stood within their own ranks.' Journal of Ecclesiastical History 'Wright offers a new, important perspective on Jansenism's origins.' American Historical Review
