Quesnel, Pasquier
(1634-1719)
   theologian
   Born in Paris, Pasquier Quesnel was an oratian priest who, upon becoming a Jansenist, left the Oratory (1681) and joined antoine arnauld in Brussels (1685). He was, after Arnauld, the leader and main organizer of the Jansenist faction. Imprisoned at Malines (1703), he escaped and settled first in Liège, then in utrecht. Quesnel's Réflexions morales sur le Nouveau Testament (1699) were condemned in the papal bull Unigenitus Dei Filius (1713), to which Quesnel responded by "appealing" to a general council of the church.
