The Rules of Christian Decorum and Civility (SB)


Translated by Richard Arnandez, FSC; edited by Gregory Wright, FSC. (1990; 152 pp.)

The first edition of this book was published anonymously in 1703 as a reading textbook. Considering the nature and background of the urchins with whom it was intended to be used, we can only admire the idealism and objectives of the first Brothers. This book has had over 85 editions and was still in use in the mid-19th century. Some of the rules will amuse, and some will surprise, but De La Salle’s premise for Christian decorum and civility is simple: we are all children of God, worthy of the respect we give and receive.
