Abstract: Mme de Maintenon’s letters often refer to religious silence. Heart of a christian woman’s life, silence is indeed a way to achieve salvation. Practising silence, both in speaking and writing, allows one to master and reduce one’s pride. It is then a good tool to control others, as it is to pursue a spiritual fulfilment.
