The originality of Claude d'Espence (1511-1572) in the eyes of historians of the Reformation is due to the nuanced positions which make this theologian the representative of « another » Catholicism, isolated from partisan rigidity and extremist affirmations. He had the time to compose these homilies on the parable of the prodigal son thanks to the delays characteristic of the first period of the Council of Trent, at which he was a representative of the French king. They represent an interesting attempt to engage a cultivated public in the questions being debated by theologians. Very present in the culture of his time, notably through the theater, the parable of the prodigal son offers for Claude d’Espence the occasion to begin to deal with several sensitive questions, such as the relation between faith and good works, or the conditions of free will—vast problems, which this modest little work considers in a climate of serenity, in a prose at the same time supple and firm, offering us a remarkable synthesis of an efferverscence of ideas and of a communicative effort.
