    • n Jansenism A system of evangelical doctrine deduced from the writings of Augustine by Cornelius Jansen, Roman Catholic bishop of Ypres (1585-1638), and maintained by his followers. It is described by Catholic authorities as “a heresy which consisted in denying the freedom of the will and the possibility of resisting Divine grace,” under “a professed attempt to restore the ancient doctrine and discipline of the Church.” (Cath. Dict.) It is regarded by Protestant authorities as “a reaction within the Catholic Church against the theological casuistry and general spirit of the Jesuit order,” and “a revival of the Augustinian tenets upon the inability of the fallen will and upon efficacious grace.” (G. P. Fisher, Hist. Reformation, p. 451.)

This is likely to be directly related to the correlation with luminosity noted by Jansen et al. (2001), as the higher EW systems include those with the lower luminosities.

Given the scatter in the relation shown in Figure 1 of Jansen et al. (2001), a range of at least 5 or 6 magnitudes would need to be sampled to identify this trend, so it is not surprising that it is not clearly detected in the current sample.
