Heretical Christian doctrine inspired by St. Augustine of Hippo and initiated by the Flemish bishop Cornelius Jansen in the seventeenth century that defended predestination only dependent on god's will without free will against what was defended by the Society of Jesus, the authority of bishops in the face of papal power and a rigorous spirituality of austerity and asceticism.
