This work provides the first detailed examination since the 1920s of how one of the most successful manifestations of international Catholic renewal, the Society of Jesus, compromised with authorities in Catholic France. Giving a new perspective on how international initiatives for Catholic renewal played out on the ground in Europe, it provides a fresh angle to the scholarly debate over confessionalization and the importance of national church traditions to the success of the Counter Reformation.
