dc.description.abstractIn September 1626, Vincent de Paul and three companions signed an act of association that described the common work that they had been performing over a period of several years and presented a promisE' from each man that they would continue to devote themselves to that work in the future. Their work had already been approved by the archbishop of Paris, and was shortly after approved by the French crown and the papacy (1627).1 This meant that, under the auspices of the Congregation of the Mission, Vincent de Paul and his colleagues could continue their missionary work and consolidate and extend their activity to other fields, including seminaries, retreats and charitable initiatives. By the time that Vinc('nt de Paul died, on 27 September 1660, the Congregation had spread beyond France to Italy, Savoy, Poland, Ireland, Scotland, North Africa and Madagascar, and possessed twenty-four establishments within French borders.en_IE
