Giovanni Bosco – “First salesian colleges founded outside Turin (1863-1864)” in “Salesian Sources 1. Don Bosco and his work. Collected Works”

In 1863, Saint John Bosco undertook a pivotal study by founding the Mirabello College and crafting meticulous regulations for its governance. These regulations, initially handwritten and later printed, were intended as the foundational statute for future institutions. Don Bosco distributed copies to parish priests in nearby dioceses, underscoring their significant role. The Central Salesian Archives house both handwritten and printed examples of these regulations, offering insights into the early development of Don Bosco’s educational vision. The passage invites a comparative analysis between these early documents and the ‘official’ regulations from 1877, providing a historical perspective on the evolution of Don Bosco’s educational guidelines.
