Jeanne-Marie Bouvier de la Motte-Guyon (more commonly known as “Madame Guyon”) (1648 - 1717) lived during the time of King Louis XIV and was enraptured by worldly things for a time. Disenchanted by that lifestyle, Guyon became increasingly interested in spiritual things during her teenage years and later become a leading French mystic in a movement known as Quietism. Her beliefs were considered heretical by the Roman Catholic Church, and she was imprisoned from 1695 until 1703 following the publication of her unauthorized book on Quietism, A Short and Easy Method of Prayer.
