Saint John Bosco in relation to social exclusion of the Italian youth in the 19th century
Languages of publication
Nowadays we use the term ‘social exclusion’. In the times of St. John Bosco the above mentioned term was not known but still the youth was affected by that fact. In the 19th century in Italy and in Piemonte in particular the fact of social exclusion was evident among the youth. This article is aimed to portray St. John Bosco as the one who helps the young socially excluded and deprived of family life. The very first reaction of John Bosco was his creation of his oratory for the young deprived of their own home. John Bosco would extend his offer of help to the young with the passage of time. He would build schools, boarding schools, junior high schools, vocational schools and other centres of education for them. He himself also created a unique method of educating of the young called “the preventive system”. He turned to religion, love and mind of the human-being who needs assistance and family atmosphere. The author also tries to highlight the social, economic and political situation of Italy of that time which contributed to the social exclusion of the young.
