Fr Justin Taylor to write the biography of the Founder

The Superior General of the Marist Fathers has commissioned Fr Justin Taylor sm (NZ) to write a biography of the Founder. This will be a full-length scholarly biography covering the whole life of Jean-Claude Colin from his birth in 1790 to his death in 1875. The most recent biography of Fr Colin is Stanley Hosie's Anonymous Apostle, published in 1967. The years up to 1836 have been studied recently by Donal Kerr. But it soon became clear that it was not really possible to continue his work. So Fr Justin has been asked to write a new life of the Founder in order to satisfy the requirements of the beatification process and meet the wishes of Marists and of all who are interested in Jean-Claude Colin.
