A Little More Information

These seven essays provide a deeper context for understanding St. John Baptist de La Salle’s story and the educational movement that he initiated.

From the Introduction: “Although an innovator, De La Salle did not undertake his mission without being directly or indirectly influenced by the vision of his predecessors and contemporaries, who were also committed to the work of education under the auspices of either religious or nonsectarian institutions. For this reason, the scope of this volume has been extended to include an examination of those specific educational philosophies and programs which evolved in France and more generally in Europe, particularly up to the end of the seventeenth century.”

(1990; 193 pg.)
