lfl 1713 against a Jansenist book by Father Quesnel rekindled a quarrel, the end of which Louis XIV.
Six years later he was joined in exile by Pasquier Quesnel who succeeded him as leader of the party.
He was known to be very hostile to the Jesuits, and at Chalons had more than once expressed official approval of Quesnel's Reflexions.
The pope's choice of a book to condemn fell on Quesnel's Reflexions; in 1713 appeared the bull Unigenitus, anathematizing no less than one-hundredand-one of its propositions.

The rejection of this bull by certain bishops led to a new party division and a further prolonging of the controversy (see Jansenism and Quesnel, Pasquier).
Long before his flight from France Quesnel had published a devotional commentary - Reflexions morales sur le Nouveau Testament - which had gone through many editions without exciting official suspicion.
