A Little More Information

Unlike the regular volumes of Lasalliana, this volume is a single document of 220+ pages that chronicles every event either directly or indirectly associated with the life of St. John Baptist de La Salle and the Institute that he founded. Each event includes a short explanation and the source or reference for the event.


EXAMPLE: On February 17, 1682, John Baptist de La Salle makes a promise to reimburse the Sisters of the Child Jesus. “In case there was a shortfall on the capital of [the equivalent of 600 British pounds in 1994], he promises to reimburse them out of his own pocket. Notaries: Herbin and Admet. Signature of De La Salle, age thirty.” Sources cited are from the Cahiers Lasalliens.
