(US) Feminism, Absolutism, and Jansenism Louis XIV and the Port-Royal Nuns (Author: Daniella Kostroun, Indiana University–Purdue University, Indianapolis)
Publication date: June 2011
“Feminism, Absolutism, and Jansenism chronicles seventy years of Jansenist conflict and its complex intersection with power struggles between gallican bishops, Parlementaires, the Crown, and the pope. Daniella Kostroun focuses on the nuns of Port-Royal-des-Champs, whose community was disbanded by Louis XIV in 1709 as a threat to the state. Paradoxically, it was the nuns' adherence to their strict religious rule and the ideal of pious, innocent, and politically disinterested behavior that allowed them to challenge absolutism effectively.
Bach Network UK is pleased to announce publication of the sixth volume of the web journal UNDERSTANDING BACH, edited by Ruth Tatlow. Full text of the articles, reports and editorial can be read online.
