Educacao Crista (português brasileiro / Brazilian Portuguese)

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.
