Questions à Claude Langlois : regard d’un moderniste sur les “textes thérésiens”,suivi de Réponse de Claude Langlois : Thérèse ou le retour à l’histoire

Abstract : When he was building his corpus theresanium, Claude Langlois took Therese seriously as a writer. As an historian of Early Modern Europe, I met a twin challenge: is it not acknowledged that the “scholar time of the mysticism” is finishing at the end of the 17th century, with the condemnation of the quietism? And what conclusion can we draw from the coincidence between the very quick emergence of the theresian worship and the rising of the mysticism as an historical study (Bremond) at the time of the Catholic Modernist Crisis? In his answer, Claude Langlois, studying Therese's writing through a historical point of view, finds himself in the same conflict the Church had during Therese's canonization: was her spirituality linked to the quietism? How could literature met sanctity, and autobiography hagiography?
