About Musée de Port-Royal des Champs

The Musée de Port-Royal des Champs was at one time a famous school. The ruined abbey, which the museum overlooks, was once the centre of Jansenism (a Catholic reform movement largely directed against the Jesuits).

It is quite easy to underestimate the influence that the type of groups and schools had on French life; this is where the intellectuals and power-mongers came to learn the arts of reason and debate.

The endless wars of the Middle Ages often revolved around the nuances of Catholic doctrine, and schools such as this played a crucial role in politics. In addition, important intellectuals such as Pascal and Racine studied here and refined their beliefs and rhetoric, which would be influential.

The Musée National de Port-Royal de Champs is dedicated to the history of this political and religious movement and contains a large number of engravings, books and paintings.
