The Black Legends - Part 08- The Jansenist Menace

SKU: 3368D-08


Jansenists were among those who claimed to understand nature as it really was: wicked. Dr. John Rao indicates that they were horrified by the Church's alliance with Jesuits trying to raise nature to "the greater glory of God". Hence, their commitment to an effort to "shoot down" the exalted Tridentine vision of nature's mission, and the associated attempts to make everything from architecture to science "reach for the skies", and its depiction as a dangerous, deluded fraud. Taken from: The Black Legends: The Renaissance, the Enlightenment, and the Anti-Catholic Myth - 2003 VonHildebrand Institute
