  Jansenists saw the Church's attitude towards nature as deluded and overblown. The Enlightenment believed that nature could soar if only freed from the Church's effort to corrupt it with a fraudulent supernatural guidance. Both groups promoted their understanding of nature and ridiculed the Church's vision as a lie through a development of the popular Press and the creation of explosive issues--causes cĂ©lebres--that put orthodox in an absurdly bad light. Taken from: The Black Legends: The Renaissance, the Enlightenment, and the Anti-Catholic Myth - 2003 VonHildebrand Institute
