Pierre-Daniel Huet e i Messieurs de Port-Royal

Translated title of the contribution: [Autom. eng. transl.] Pierre-Daniel Huet and Gentlemen of Port-Royal

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article reconstructs some of the behind-the-scenes to the publication of Origen's "In Sacras Scripturas Commentaria" by Pierre-Daniel Huet. The exam of the correspondence, of several unpublished notes, and of some doctrines described in Huet's "Origeniana" allows to strengthen the hypothesis according to which Huet, since his youth, tied his fate to the Society of Jesus. Furthermore, while it is renowned that Anti-Cartesianism is a common field to Huet and the Jesuits, Huet's opposition to the so-called "parti janséniste" is not well-known. Finally, such events reveal some details that are useful to finalize the picture of the harsh struggle between Jesuits and Jansenists in the second half of the Seventeenth Century
