Chapter Summary

Pajon's appointment was a key component in the revival of the academy, and this element continued to play a determinative role in the controversies surrounding his thought in the years that followed. There is no doubt a close relationship between the sermon and the position Pajon which had developed in his "De natura. Pajon was indeed named professor of theology to Saumur, and this as a move to help restore the struggling academy to its former state of glory. This "Traité", which was composed over the course of several months late in 1665 or early in 1666, was the primary document used by both Mailhet and Pope in the reconstruction of Pajon's thought. The passages that were examined earlier form Pajon's most important argument in favor of his claim that he faithfully represents Cameron's thought. The Pajonist controversy can and must be framed as 'battle over Cameron's intellectual legacy'.
