In sixteenth-century Italy and seventeenth-century France, there emerged a relative abundance of male and female congregations devoted to instruction of youth. The author explores the emergence of and spiritual differentiation among what would become known as "teaching orders" in the traditions of Saints Augustine, Benedict, Francis de Sales, Ignatius, and many others. The influence of Catholic and Lutheran reformations is explored; formation and community practices are described; and the spiritual foundations of educational and pastoral ministries are compared. An earlier version of this article was published in the Dictionnaire de Spiritualite (Dictionary of Spirituality), Vol. XI.
