Catalogue Note

An Italian translation of one of Bossuet's writings against François Fénelon during the Quietist controversy. Quietism had been condemned by the Pope in 1687, but a further work by Bossuet on the subject caused Fénelon to reply in print and led to his own condemnation by the Church in 1699.
