About the author (1973)

Francois de Salignac de la Mothe Fénelon (16511715) was a French archbishop, theologian, and writer whose excursions into the contemplative life, especially quietism, caused controversy in the church of his day. His writings remain, though, as an encouragement and source of spiritual growth for many Christians today. Fénelon, descended from a long line of nobility, started his higher studies in 1672 at Saint-Sulpice seminary in Paris. Ordained a priest in 1676, he was then appointed director of Nouvelles Catholiques (New Cathoics), a college for women who taught converts from French Protestantism. While never supportive of Protestantism, Fénelon was nonetheless critical of harsh treatment toward Hugeunots (French Protestants) and the many forced conversions that occurred under King Louis XIV; he instead held open meetings with Protestants to share the Catholic doctrine in a non-threatening environment. His most popular works are Traite de leducation des filles (Treatise on the Education of Girls) and Les Aventures de Telemaque (The Adventures of Telemachus).
