Historical Context Note


Henry IV expels the Jesuits from certain areas of France, since they were the educators of his recent would-be assassin, Jean Ch√Ętel, and had favoured his enemies the Catholic League. However, they re-admits them to his kingdom in 1603, and even grants them a castle for the foundation of a new academy in 1604.
