What was Jansenism? I remember hearing about it back in school, but I don’t remember much about it, except that it was a movement which took a gloomy ,severe view of God and religion.


It emphasizes man’s depravity and sinfulness, his need for God’s grace, and hammers predestination almost as hard as Calvin did.
