Author Bio

Francois de Salignac de la Mothe-Fenelon (1651And#8211;1715) was the archbishop of Cambrai. He met Christian contemplative Madame Jeanne Guyon in 1688, apparently appreciating and affirming some of her doctrines and contemplative practices, while distancing himself from them on other occasions. In 1689, he was appointed tutor to the grandson of Louis XIV. He became archbishop in 1695. Fenelon wrote letters of spiritual counsel that are highly valued to this day.Jeanne Guyon (1648And#8211;1717) wrote from the depth of her own spiritual experiences. Growing up in France during the decadent times of Louis XIV, she was devout at an early age but then became caught up in the worldliness around her. After an arranged marriage at age fifteen, she became increasingly interested in spiritual things; and, for the rest of her life, she continued to seek God diligently, teach others, and write books on Christian devotion. These books have become Christian classics. Guyon paid a heavy price for her views and her writings. Throughout her life, she underwent various trials, including persecution and imprisonment for her beliefs. Her commentary on Song of Songs was used to sentence her to prison.Not much is known about Pere Lacombe, other than that he was the spiritual mentor of Madame Guyon, who followed him to the various parishes to which he was posted. Eventually, he was imprisoned with Guyon in the Bastille, and afterward in the castles of Oloron and Lourdes.
