Acceptants a name that arose in the second period of the Jansenist controversy in France. The bull Unigenitus (q.v.) of Clement XI, 1713, was accepted by some of the French clergy unconditionally; by others only on condition of its reference to a general council. The former were called acceptants or constitutionalists; the latter appellants. SEE JANSENISTS.
