Joseph Boenzi – Chastity in the salesian constitutions

In a letter dated May 24, 1966, Fr. Luigi Ricceri (1901-1989), then Rector Major of the Salesian Society, introduced a new edition of the Constitutions to his confreres. Nearly one year had elapsed since the close of the nineteenth general chapter of the Salesian Society, and six months had passed since the close of Vatican II In this context, Fr. Ricceri introduced the constitutions which carried a number of changes that were to usher the Society toward its twentieth general chapter.

Arthur Lenti – Community and mission. Spiritual insights and salesian religious life in Don Bosco’s Constitutions

The present article is not concerned with the new constitutions. No comparative study will be attempted, nor any reference will be made to them. This would be carrying coal to Newcastle. I shall instead attempt simply to identify and briefly discuss some of the spiritual insights and principles for religious life and action which Don Bosco embodied in his constitutions.

Paul Formosa – Historical sketch of the oratory of Don Bosco in Malta

In this article, I will attempt to trace how Don Bosco’s original experience was translated in such a way that his work could be established in Malta – an island country in the Mediterranean with a distinct tradition and culture from that in which the Salesian story first began and developed in Turin, Italy. I will place special emphasis on the Salesian Oratory, Sliema.

John Rasor – Early salesian regulations: formation in the Preventive System

The first part of this study, however, will examine that other body of Salesian particular law, the Regulations. It will trace their development from their earliest beginnings around 1850, the era of Father Rosmini’s and Father De Guadenzi’s Sunday afternoon visit, up to 1967.

Arthur Lenti – Saint with a human face: Don Bosco in Father Giulio Barberis original chronicle

The Central Salesian Archive contains numerous eyewitness reports of Don Bosco’s words and deeds, particularly in the form of chronicles and memoirs. I drew heavily on these documents for previous articles which saw the light of day in the pages of this Journal. I shall do the same for the present article.

Paul Wynants – Writing the history of a religious teaching institute: guidelines for research, sources and methods (19th and 20th Centuries)

In the framework of such a short introduction, I would like to recall some basic principles, obvious enough to most specialists.

The first half of my presentation will be historiographical: by tracing the way in which a congregation’s past has been perceived over the course of time, I will point out themes for research that seem of interest to me.

Arthur Lenti – The founding and early expansion of the salesian work in the San Francisco area from Archival Documents, Part II

As in the earlier article, so also in the present one, besides transcribing and translating pertinent archival documents (chiefly letters), I will try to provide an essential historical framework designed to make the sequence intelligible.
