Le "collège-séminaire" de l'Oratoire du Mans sous l'Ancien Régime (1599-1792)

Abstract : Le Mans owned one of the most Oratorian schools in France after the one of Juilly. The Oratorians settled in Le Mans in 1624 under the episcopal authority of Mgr Charles Beaumanoir de Lavardin, wich implemented one of the most essentials aspects of the Tridentine Reform : raise youths ! This thesis aims at grasping the numerous difficulties met by seniors, prefects and regents until 1792. The issues bore upon the novelty of their teachings, upon their relationship with Jansenism, upon their spiritual Christ-centered practices and the financial hardships hich triggered in some people’s minds the willingness to make the institution part of the city. The school was a relay of Port-Royal with the « Grand Arnauld » who instructed few years. The long period before the Revolution was affected by two theological affairs with came to blur the image of the Le Mans Institution. The civil Constitution of the clergy, in 1790, marked a definitive breaking off between the « Sacedotem » teachers and the non-religious teachers.
