Excerpt: 1644-1645. AT the beginning of the regency the queen had established a council of conscience, at which were decided all matters concerning benefices, the choice of bishops and abb‚s, and the distribution of pensions that she wished to give to the glory of God and the advantage of religion. This council existed as long as the minister, seeing his authority thwarted, remained under some restraint; but as soon as he had acquired complete dominion over the queen's mind, the council of conscience went off in smoke; he wished to dispose as he pleased, without any contradiction, of the benefices as of everything else, in order that those to whom the queen gave them should be friends of his, without caring much whether they were true servants of God, saying that he supposed all priests were that.
