Chapter Summary

In 1622, Roman intelligence found the Belgian bishops had appointed an agent at the curia in an attempt to neutralise the new taxa in the Pauline Concordat; hopes that were dashed, however, by the 1625 sentence of the Great Council of Mechlin in favour of Vande Velde. In his letters to Saint-Cyran, Cornelius Jansenius had stated sarcastically, when commenting on the attempts to have the order's founder canonised, that the fathers now wanted Loyola to govern the kingdom of heaven as they tried to rule the earth. Cornelius Jansenius, Trevigi's correspondent in the recurrent skirmishes with the Jesuits both at Louvain and in the periphery, continued to comment with wit on academic business in his letters with his brother in arms Saint-Cyran. In the genealogy of heresy, a lot of illegitimate children surface: Jansonius was not the successor of Baius; he became his successor, in spite of Baius himself.
