Although the Catholic Church officially condemned the heresy of Jansenism in 1653, its legacy throughout French and Irish Catholicism in particular has been persistent. Jansenist influence on American Catholicism has been strong due to the fact that its negative view of human nature resonated with the Puritan/Calvinist view of natural depravity.
