A Little More Information
This is the most recent and most comprehensive biography of John Baptist de La Salle in English. Alfred Calcutt combines a wide variety of information, from the history of serge weavers in the Reims area to the details of almost anyone with whom De La Salle had any dealings, and has woven them into a major narrative that provides both the historical details and the insights that come from having examined such a breadth of information. As a result, this work may seem to provide too much information in some areas, but it is well worth the effort because of the depth that it provides based on the latest historical studies about De La Salle and his times.
