Fr. John J. Conley, SJ, the Henry J. Knott Professor of Philosophy and Theology at Loyola University Maryland, recently published Angelique de Saint-Jean Arnauld d'Andilly: Writings of Resistance (University of Toronto/Iter Press, 2015). The book is a translation, critical edition, and commentary on several works written by Angelique de Saint-Jean Arnauld d'Andilly (1624-1684), an abbess at the Jansenist convent of Port-Royal. The autobiography and philosophical and theological treatises presented in the volume defend the rights of conscience against political and religious coercion. Fr.
