+  Francis de Sales: A Saint at the Crossroads of the Reformation (2 segments)

  • Description: In many ways St Francis de Sales was the embodiment of the Catholic reformation. Born into a noble family, he was expected to study law and inherit the family estate. Instead, he decided to go into the world as an evangelist and win converts from Calvinist Geneva. We look at his reforms for clergy and laity with Jill Fehleison.
