François Fénelon was a seventeenth-century French Catholic archbishop who rose to a position of influence in the court of Louis XIV. He became a wise mentor to many members of the kings court. Later exiled from Versailles for political reasons, Fénelon set about with considerable energy to improve the lot of peasants and to deepen the spiritual life of all with whom he came in contact.
