Order Voluntaries, Patron of soldiers, by Pierre Helyot 1714

Title:

Religieux de l'Orde des pauvres Volontaires, en Allemagne

 

The monastic profession of the ancients was an act of voluntary devotion. The inconstant fanatic was threatened with the eternal vengeance of the God whom he deserted; but the doors of the monastery were still open for repentance. Those monks, whose conscience was fortified by reason or passion, were at liberty to resume the character of men and citizens; and even the spouses of Christ might accept the legal embraces of an earthly lover.

The voluntary or involuntary absence of the abbess in times of warfare supplies quite a sufficient reason for the disbanding of the nuns.

The Volantaires have a big history, from priest to army.

Copper plate engraving by: Pierre Helyot Paris, Coignard 1714.

After spending his youth in study, he entered in his twenty-fourth year the convent of the third, order of St Francis, founded at Picpus, near Paris, by his uncle Jérhme, Helyot, canon of St Sepulchre. There he took the name of Père Hippolyte.

 

From:

L'Histoire des ordres monastiques, religieux et militaires, et des congregations séculières de l'un et de l'autre sexe, qui ont été établis jusqu'à présent, published in 5 volumes in 1714?1721. Helyot died on January 5, 1716, before the fifth volume appeared, but his friend Maximilien Bullot completed the edition. Helyot's only other noteworthy work is Le Chritien maurani (1695).

It is inscribed under the image"de Poilly f."

Attractive detailed engraving, nice to frame.
