'The Cruelest of All Mothers' examines Marie's confounding decision to abandon the young Claude, situating the event within the contexts of Marie's own writings, family life in 17th-century France, the Christian tradition, and early modern French spirituality. This book takes up Marie's decision to abandon Claude as an instance of human agency, arguing that the abandonment is best understood neither as an act of submission to the will of God nor as an act of resistance against the prevailing norms of 17th-century French family life, but rather as something in between."@en ;
