ARREST DU PARLEMENT DU 5 MARS 1762.

La Cour a ordonné que les Passages extraits des Livres de 147 Autheurs Jesuites etant verifiés, une Copie collationnée en sera presentée au Roy, pour le mettre en etat de connoitre la perversité de la Doctrine soutenue constament par les soy disans Jesuites depuis la naissance de la Societé jusqu'au moment actuel, avec l' Approbation des Theologiens, la permission des Superieurs et Generaux et l'eloge d'autres membres de la dite Société : Doctrine autorisant le Vol, le Mensonge, le Parjure, l' Impureté, toutes les Passions et tous les Crimes, enseignant l'Homicide, le Parricide et le Regicide, renversant la Religion pour y substituer des Superstitions, en favorisant la Magie, le Blasphême, l' Irreligion et l'Idolatrie; Et sera ledit Seigneur Roy très-humblement supplié de considérer ce qui résulte d'un enseignement aussi pernicieux combiné avec le choix et l' uniformité des Opinions dans ladite Société. Fait en Parl. le 5 Mars 1762.

The reader should be apprized that this volume contains a portion only of the Extracts referred to in the above Arrêt, the whole collection forming a large Quarto, published by authority, as verified and collated by the Commissioners* of Parliament; and further that an audacious attempt was made by the Jesuits in a work entitled Réponse aux Assertions to cast discredit upon them as for the most part studied fabrications. To ascertain the validity of this impeachment, the Libraries of the two Universities, of the British Museum,

* The Commissioners were 5 Princes of the Blood, 4 Peers of France, 7 Presidents of the Court, 13 Counsellors of the Grand Chamber, and 14 other Functionaries.

and of Sion College have been searched for the authors cited; and in every instance where the volume could be found, the correctness of the citation has been established. To afford every facility to those who may be desirous of satisfying themselves, the particular Library where the book is deposited is added, within brackets, to the author's name, an alphabetical list of the Writers, and the result of a Collation with the Originals, as far as it could be conducted, are given in the Appendix.
