Primarily remembered for his novel “The Adventures of Telemachus”, Francois Fenelon was a French archbishop of Cambray who wrote a number of poems and essays. One such work was his ‘Dissertation on Pure Love’ which was highly important for its inclusion of the life and work of Madame Guyon – a French mystic and proponent of Quietism.

 

In early Quaker Pennsylvania, the works of both Fenelon and Guyon were quite popular. So much so that publishers like Christopher Sauer published them together in one work. This 1750 edition of describes Guyon as a ‘martyr to Catholic intolerance, a Protestant in disguise, or an example of inner perfection’.

FENELON, Francois de Salignac

The Archbishop of Cambray’s dissertation on pure love with an account of the life and writings of the lady, for whose sake the Archbishop was banish’d from court. And the grievous persecutions she suffer’d in France for her religion, also two letters written by one of the lady’s maids, during her confinement in the castle of Vicennes, where she was a prisoner eight years: one of the letters was writ with a bit of stick instead of a pen, and soot instead of ink, to her brother; the other to a clergyman.

London: Printed and re-printed by Christophor Sowr, 1750. [i.e. Germantown-Philadelphia, Pennsylvania].
