Michel Sauvage, FSC STD
Cahiers Lasallians has published in two volumes the doctoral dissertation in theology defended by Miguel Campos at the Pontifical Lateran University in October 1973. The jury noted that, like several of his fellow students at the Jesus Magister Institute, this candidate had produced an extraordinary scholarly work. Unanimously, they awarded him the highest level of distinction.
This dissertation, although an academic work, is nevertheless first and foremost the result of an encounter.
The text was written in French by a Cuban whose initial university education was taken in the United States. We owe this theological and scientific research to a religious, a Brother of the Christian Schools, who before his novitiate had majored in chemistry and then taught in Santo Domingo, Miami, and the Catechetical Institute of Manizales (ICLA). These apostolic activities brought him into profound contact with the aspirations of Latino and North American youth. His commitment as a religious educator led him to contribute effectively to a radical transformation of the structures in the school where he was teaching.
