ALEXANDER VII 1655-1667

Formulary of Submission Proposed for the Jansenists *

 

[From the Constitution, “Regiminis apostolicis,” Feb. 15. 1665]

 

1099 “I, N., submit to the apostolic Constitution of INNOCENT X, dated May 31. 1653, and to the Constitution of ALEXANDER VII, dated Oct. 16. 1656, Supreme Pontiffs, and I reject and condemn with a sincere heart, just as the Apostolic See has condemned them by the said Constitutions, the five propositions taken from the book of Cornelius Jansen, entitled Augustinus, and in the sense understood by that same author, and so I swear: So help me God, and this holy gospel of God.” *
