Abstract :
A new investigation of the Jesuit archives in Rome reveals some unknown data about Father Adriaen Poirters (1605-1674); more importantly, it makes clear that Poirters was accused of having a relationship with a woman, and that he therefore was kept isolate for some time. The article inquires into the possible echoes of this affair in the Jesuit’s literary output.
