Angelique Arnauld was the third of the 20 children of the lawyer Antoine Arnauld, and one of six sisters of the philosopher Antoine Arnauld. While Arnauld was being raised by Cistercian nuns in the Abbey of Port-Royal-des-Champs, Abbess Johanna von Boulehart selected her as her successor at the age of seven. Months before her 12th birthday, she became the Abbess of Port-Royal on 5 July 1602. She was better known thereafter as La Mère Angélique. Arnauld reformed her monastery shortly after becoming abbess, and she was instrumental in the reforms of several other monasteries.
