Writings By Moreau
First published in 1856, Christian Education by Father Basil Moreau was originally written for the Holy Cross Brothers who were sent out to establish primary schools in nineteenth-century rural France, and other parts of the world. Combining intellectual and moral instruction, Father Moreau’s teaching methods formed the foundation of a Holy Cross education and live on at the many Holy Cross schools, colleges and universities that span the globe. To this edition are appended a reader’s guide and materials for further reflection.
