New Book By Fr. John Conley, SJ, On Angelique de Saint-Jean Arnauld d'Andilly
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. Conley introduced the book during
a lecture, "Angelique Arnauld d'Andilly: Her Place in the Philosophical Canon,"
at the annual conference of the American Philosophical Association in
Washington, DC on January 8, 2016.
