This chapter deals with the persistent Jansenist problem. The problem of Jansenism and its successive guises had been intermingled with the histories of France and of Catholicism. In France, Jansenism was more closely related to moral and sacramental issues concerning devots and reformers. After 1700, when the monarchy abandoned the gallican ways to collaborate with the papacy, Jansenism attracted the support of both lay and clerical gallicans. During the half-century after the death of Louis XIV and in the presence of a changing political environment, Jansenism had moved and had transformed in unexpected and in more determined ways.
