Did this Happen?


In our weekly Bible Study, a non-Catholic member stated that the Jesuits were once reprimanded or possibly faced disolution because at a time of persecution (possibly French Revolution) they were instructed to renounce their faith when challenged but viewed this as a mental exercise which did not speak the trutch that lie in their hearts. Did this happen? Does anyone know more about it and how it was resolved?

Thank you and God Bless!
