Francois Fenelon

a.k.a. Francois de Salignac de la Mothe-Fenelon

Author Code: FFMF

Born: Aug. 6, 1651 - Sainte-Mondane, Perigord, France

Died: Jan. 7, 1715 - Cambrai, France

Initially educated by private tutor, Fenelon then studied philosophy and rhetoric at the University of Cahors. When his interest turned to theology, he attended the College of Plessis and the Seminaire de Saint-Sulpice in Paris. He was ordained a priest in 1675 and in 1678 was appointed head of the house of Nouvelles-Catholiques. He then spent some years in the Saintonge region trying to convince Huguenots of the error of their Protestant ways. In 1687, he published his Treatise on the Existence of God. From 1689 to 1697, Fenelon was the tutor of the Duke of Burgundy, the son of the Dauphine. In 1693, Fenelon was elected to the French Academy. During 1694 he wrote The Adventures of Telemachus, Son of Ulysses, which was a veiled criticism of the supposed divinity of monarchy. Naturally, when it was subsequently published in 1699, it enraged Louis XIV. In 1696, he was appointed Archbishop of Cambrai while continuing his tutoring of the Duke. Fenelon's publication of Maxims of the Saints led to his fall from favor with Louis XIV who ordered him confined to his archdiocese. Fenelon was a prolific writer whose letters and memoirs fill seven volumes. His other works include Treatise on the Education of Girls (1681), Refutation of the System of Malebranche Concerning Nature and Grace (1685) and The Inner Life (1697).
