Through the extensive notes prepared for his presentations at the Centro Internazionale Lasalliano (Generalate of the Brothers of the Christian Schools, Rome, Italy) in 1983, the author provides a comprehensive orientation to the social, spiritual and political mileau in which John Baptist de La Salle and the first Brothers discerned what would become the Lasallian educational mission. The community of the Brothers is described from its formation, through the emergence of vows and of documents that guide and perpetuate community life. Embedded in the story are key benchmarks in establishing the juridical status of the Brothers. The narrative concludes at the beginning of the twentieth century.
