Spirit and nature : the Saint-Médard miracles in 18th-century Jansenism

Spirit Nature
Ephraim Radner

Jansenism, the view of the world as dark and fallen, enjoyed its heyday in 17th century Europe.

Radner explores Jansenism and its response to purported miraculous 
events, exploring the interior logic and its implications for Christian pneumatology.

This is a scholarly account of the miracles of Saint Medard as well as a "a keen reading of Jansenism, its development, and its achievements in the midst of its failures"

The author shows how Janseniam "ran aground theologically but also how Jansenism can help shape a theological future."
