    More Information:

    Nicole (1625-1695) celebrated French divine. He studied at the Sorbonne and prepared himself for the licentiate "but was deprived from it by the dispute which arose about the five famous propositions of Jansenius, added to his connections with Mr. Arnauld...In France he suffered much by undertaking the defense of Jansenius, whose opinions were condemned by the Sorbonne, the clergy of France, and indeed the whole church."

    Arnauld (1612-1694) doctor of the Sorbonne, he supported the tenants of the Jansenists with great zeal and was attacked by the Jesuits. He retired for 25 years writing a number of books on grammar, geometry, logic, metaphysics and theology. In 1668 he came forth from his retreat and was accepted as a father of the church. However, controversy still surrounded him and he fled to the Netherlands.
