This volume features a new translation of all the known correspondence of Saint John Baptist de La Salle (1651–1719), founder of the Brothers of the Christian Schools and patron saint of all teachers. Some 150 letters, including 40 never before available in English, addressed to Brothers, members of his family, religious of other communities, and lay people, illuminate the character of the man who has been praised as an innovative educator, an eminent spiritual writer and patron saint of all teachers. This scholarly work includes extensive commentaries incorporating modern research.
The Letters of John Baptist de La Salle is part of the Lasallian Publications series, which produced volumes on the life, writings, and work of Saint John Baptist de La Salle and on the early history of the Brothers.
