School Manuals

Presentation

The Congrégation de Notre-Dame produced more school manuals than any other community of women religious in Quebec. Some 440 publications are credited to its name. Among them are text books and workbooks, for both students and teachers (livre du maître). Half of these have been either re-printed or re-edited. These publications illustrate the evolution of the education systems and the teaching methods, but also the many changes in society, in particular, the transformation of the value system.
