SedesThe 17th century was the period of transition between the Renaissance and the Enlightenment. It witnessed the rise of the great European power, the beginning of modern science and the myriad inventions that changed age-old ways of life.

Seventeenth-century France saw the application of the new spirit of exploration and analysis to matters of the soul. Pierre de Berulle, John Eudes, Jean-Jacques Olier (Founder of the Society of St. Sulpice) and Mother Madeleine de Saint-Joseph left an indelible mark on the history of Christian Spirituality in the West. Much of our current understanding of “spirituality” has its beginnings with these authors. —Dr. William Thompson
