About the Author:

Francois de Salignac de la Mothe Fnelon (1651-1715) was a French archbishop, theologian, and writer whose excursions into the contemplative life, especially the quietism espoused by Mme. Guyon, caused controversy in the church of his day. His writings remain, though, as an encouragement and source of spiritual growth for many Christians today. Fnelon, descended from a long line of nobility, started his higher studies in 1672 at Saint-Sulpice seminary in Paris. He was ordained a priest in 1676 and appointed director of Nouvelles Catholiques (""New Cathoics""), a college for women who taught converts from French Protestantism. Fnelon, while never supportive of Protestantism, was nonetheless critical of harsh treatment toward Hugeunots (French Protestants) and the many forced conversions that occurred under King Louis XIV. Fnelon instead held open meetings with Protestants to share the Catholic doctrine in a non-threatening environment. Fnelon's first important work, ""Traite de l'education des filles"" (""Treatise on the Education of Girls""), was conservative overall but also suggested non-coercive concepts for educating females that were very innovative for his day. His second and best-known work, Les Aventures de Telemaque (The Adventures of Telemachus), outlined Fnelon's political beliefs through the account of Telemachus's search for Ulysses. It was written during Fnelon's time as tutor to Louis, Duke de Bourgogne, the grandson and heir to Louis XIV.

Book Description APPLEWOOD BOOKS, United States, 1996. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. First published in America in 1847, but written in 1687 by the Archbiship Fenelon of Perigord, Gascony, The Education of a Daughter is a spirited how-to book for the parents of young children. It is filled with sound wisdom on the ample subject of rearing both daughters and sons. The Archbishop s writing is sprinkled with proverbs, hints and maxims, and his insights into the psychology of a young mind as well as his outline for the principles of education are invaluable. Though written more than three centuries ago, this book is still strikingly relevant in today s society, and the issues at the heart of the book are those at the top of the evening news: education, religion and family values. The Education of a Daughter is a constant reminder that good advice often gets better with age. Bookseller Inventory # APC9781557094278
