Abstract

Jacqueline Pascal, a passionate girl, in the raisonnable religion of Port-Royal looked for a space where she could devote herself entirely to God. Choosing to be a nun in a world where women were forced to become nuns or wives, she never stops to wonder, and question the boundaries of obedience: is the Church the path leading to God or is it God himself who is the path ? Her letters are the place where the devastating conflict between faith and obedience is enacted, involving the entire abbey.
