Comments

Mary Anne Schimmelpenninck (1788-1856) visited the famous abbey Port-Royal in France, where she was attracted to the serious study, Jansenist piety, their theories of philosophy, education, religious observance, and the social duties of men. She wrote and translated several works on the Port-Royalists, including this translation of a 17th century tour by Dom Claude Lancelot, with her impressions from the early 19th century.
