Chapter Summary

This chapter explores Paets's composition of elements from the Pia Desideria. It focuses on how Paets's works related to the Ignatian tradition of meditation. The chapter discusses the two most common strategies in the appropriation and adaptation of the Pia Desideria in various European countries, before focusing on the third strategy Paets appears to have employed. After that, the origins and backgrounds of Paets's strategy and literary products in the Dutch Republic is explored, as will the impact Paets's works seem to have had in the Dutch Republic. By combining picturae, mottoes and prose fragments, Paets developed his own idiosyncratic strategy in appropriating Pia Desideria features. Rogier is considered as the historian 'most responsible for shaping the historiography of Dutch Catholicism.
