    Anyone know much about this? I guess I could Google for it but I'd be interested in knowing what posters know and think about it? IIRC, it was started as a heterodox movement within 17th century Catholicism by Cornelius Jansen, Bishop of Ypres in modern Belgium, and really took off in Louis XIV's France involving in particular the convent of Port-Royal, and was I think condemned as heretical ultimately by the Catholic Church. Some questions:-

    1. What are/ were the nuances of Jansenist theology?
    2. What is the Catholic Church's current attitude towards it?
    3. Are there any extant groups either within or outwith the Catholic Church who still hold to Jansenism?
    4. To what extent did it/ could it/ could it have acted as a bridge between Catholicism and Protestantism?
    5. What do posters generally think of it?

    Yours in Christ

    Matt
