Iconographie – Lasallian Images and Resources Collection (ROME)
SCROLL DOWN for the collection of 160 images and documents related to Saint John Baptist de La Salle that was prepared for the tricentenary of the birth of the Institute in 1680.

There was also a boxed set of color slides, accompanied by a small booklet that explained each of the images.
They are provided here as JPG and PDF files for the larger Lasallian family.
