Mourad Helps Untangle Mystic Jeanne Guyon's Intriguing Story
Jeanne Guyon—wealthy widow in the court of Louis XIV, imprisoned for heresy and her friendship with a powerful cleric—is not the heroine of a historical novel, but the real-life subject of years of scholarship done by French professor Dianne Guenin-Lelle and religious studies professor Ronney Mourad. Their work has resulted in two new books, Jeanne Guyon: Selected Writings, released by Paulist Press, and The Prison Narratives of Jeanne Guyon, published by Oxford University Press.
