Abstract

The Piarists (as they are usually called outside Italy and Spain) were the only Catholic Reformation order exclusively devoted to teaching. Moreover, whereas orders like the Barnabites, the Somascans and especially the Jesuits attracted mainly upper and middle class pupils, the Piarists provided free daily education in religious doctrine, reading, writing and abaco (commercial arithmetic needed for merchant or shopkeeping careers) to poor boys. As far as 1617, pupils of Piarist schools had to present certificates form their parish priests testyfing to their poverty. José de Calasanz, founder of the order, estabilished the first Pious school in Rome in 1597. Twenty years later, the Piarists became a religious order, and in 1637 had six provinces, with a total of 27 houses and 432 members.
