Jacques-Joseph Duguet is a theologian considered to be one of the most eminent French moralist writers. Jacques Joseph Duguet joined the Oratory congregation in 1667. He became a priest in 1677, and a professor of theology at the Saint-Magloire seminary afterwards. He was removed to Strasbourg in 1682 because of his Jansenist opinions. He refused to sign the Form and left the Oratory in 1685.
Afterwards he went to Brussels secretly in 1690 and returned to public life where he distanced himself from the most extreme Jansenists. From 1712, he wrote on the question of the conversion of the Jews to Christianity, which would be the prophetic sign of the imminent redemption of the Church which he then considered corrupt. This is a theme that will be found among figurists of the 18th and 19th centuries.
These books focus on the actions to undertake to seriously study the principles of the Christian faith & how to behave in this study and the evidence of the principles of the Christian faith by the books of the Old Testament.
