Catherine Cadière, or Marie-Catherine Cadière, born November 12 1709 at Toulon, was a French mystic accused of witchcraft in 1731. The novel Thérèse philosophe was devoted to recounting the relationship between Cathérine Cadière and Jesuit Jean-Baptiste Girard and their highly-publicized trial, held before the parliament of Aix in 1731.

Notes

  • Accusations against Girard included those of seduction, heresy, and abortion.
  • About tensions between the Jesuits and the Jansenists, between elites and the popular classes.
  • Early modern French history
  • The link between sexuality, pornography, and politics.
