Fr. Louis Cellot, S.J. On Godeschalcus

All the Benedictines, Jansenists, and Augustin monks maintain, almost without exception, that Godeschalcus was most unjustly persecuted and oppressed by Blessed Rabanus Maurus. The Jesuits are of a different opinion; they assert in general, and Louis Cellot, one of their order, has in a more particular manner labored to demonstrate, in his Historia Godeschalci Praedestinationis, published at Paris in 1653, that the monk in question was justly condemned, and deservedly punished.
