The piarist order

The Piarist (in Italian language: Scolopi, in Spanish: Escolapios) Order was founded by Saint Joseph of Calasanz who lived in the sixteenth century. In Rome he found the children living in extreme poverty in the streets of the Trastevere district. Joseph of Calansanz invented the free education for all the children whereas teaching was reserved only for those who could pay a private teacher. This was a successful idea. Piarist were called out in Europe. He became the patron saint of the Christian popular education. Nowadays the Order consist of 1500 members scattered all over the world.
