Meditations and Devotions of Fénelon – About

Selected and Translated by Elizabeth C. Fenn

‘Interest in this Archbishop of Cambrai in the reign of Louis XIV has increased, but there have been few of his writings republished here in recent years. This translation is simple and direct, and the selection shows the practical spirituality of the writer, and the relevance of his thought to the modern reader. The material is arranged in four sections: Short Meditations on Various Subjects Taken from Holy Scripture, Morning and Evening Devotions, Affective [cf. touching] Thoughts for Seasons and Special Days, and Meditations for the Sick.’
