ABSTRACT

This essay was prepared to be delivered at a conference in the Aula Magna at the FSC Casa Generalizia on May 12, 2015.

In the sixteenth century, the Renaissance humanists, the Catholic Church, and the Protestant Reformers multiplied calls for initiatives to develop the provision of schools in Europe. This created an unprecedented growth in schools in every country.

We shall not attempt to retrace here in detail the forms that this school movement took. Instead we shall summarize briefly the school situation familiar to John Baptist de La Salle in France at the end of the seventeenth century, a situation which continued up until the French Revolution in 1789.
