This comprehensive survey of Jansenism and Convulsionism in France is the only work currently available in English that places the Jansenist movement in the context of French political, social, economic, religious, and intellectual developments in the 17th and 18th centuries. Author Brian Strayer provides biographical sketches of its key leaders, analyzes their major writings, and highlights both the movement's internal conflicts and its struggles against Church and State persecution. From letters, diaries, books, and speeches, Strayer explains such important Jansenist themes as suffering, saintliness, truth, conflict, passive resistance, and their gradual embracing of toleration. He provides fresh insights into asceticism, Gallicanism, Richerism, Conciliarism, Jesuitism, and Convulsionism in their historical contexts. With gentle wit, the author exposes the contradictions and paradoxes within the movement, shares human interest stories about the Port-Royal nuns, and shows how papal bulls poisoned the religious and political life in France from 1643 to 1713 and beyond. Suffering Saints is the result of five years of research in primary and secondary sources from several major archives and libraries in Paris and the United States.

About the Author:

Brian E. Strayer is a professor in the history and political science department at Andrews University. He is the author of Bellicose Dove: Claude Brousson and Protestant Resistance to Louis XIV, 1647–1698; Lettres de cachet and Social Control in the Ancien Regime, 1659–1789; and Where the Pine Trees Softly Whisper: The History of Union Springs Academy, Huguenots and Camisards as Aliens in France, 1598–1789.

Review:

“Offers . . . a wealth of interesting information about a major movement in 17th- and 18th-century French Catholicism, specifically about many very devout and some fanatical people. . . . This book presents an extraordinary array of precise data on the successive phases of Jansenism, the people, and their writings and struggles, including numerous charts and tables, with profusely clear citations of sources. Very scholarly, it is also a great read.”  —Church History
