works during his life, lias published
their article, "The Abbe and the Lady:

Mme. Guyon" in the April number of
the "Journal of Religion."
The article is based on l.'! 0 letters

Archbishop of Canibrai, wrote over a
period of IN months during the years
of 1688 and IGSi). These letters were

the forerunner of the Quietist move-

The letters are mainly concerned
with their religious beliefs, and it
seems rather certain that "the Lady's"
I letters bad a great influence on Fen
