enseigner en Nouvelle-France / Teach in New France

Ces pierres appartenaient au fronton du collège des Jésuites. Elles sont marquées du monogramme de l'ordre, constitué des lettres IHS qui désignent Jésus. Remises aux Jésuites lors de la démolition de l'édifice en 1877, les pierres ont été offertes à la Ville de Québec en 1978 pour servir de mémorial.
Fondé en 1635, le collège des Jésuites a eu une influence considérable à Québec et dans toute la Nouvelle-France. C'est un établissement d'enseignement qui offre aux garçons les cours primaire et secondaire. C'est aussi la maison mère d'où partent les missionnaires pour l'évangélisation des Amérindiens.
Seul le collège des Jésuites propose un cours d'études classiques complet, calqué sur le modèle français. Un cours d'hydrographie prépare aux métiers de pilote et d'arpenteur. Le collège possède une impressionnante bibliothèque et loge l'apothicairerie la plus importante de la colonie.
Des fouilles archéologiques ont permis de trouver des vestiges du collège, de sa chapelle et de l'église attenante. Plusieurs sépultures provenant des lieux de culte ont été mises au jour. Les nombreux objets recueillis nous renseignent sur divers aspects de la vie au collège et sur l'utilisation de l'édifice comme caserne militaire après la Conquête.

These stones belonged to the pediment of the Jesuit College. They are marked with the monogram of the order, consisting of the letters IHS which designate Jesus. Delivered to the Jesuits during the demolition of the building in 1877, the stones were offered to the City of Quebec in 1978 to serve as a memorial.
Founded in 1635, the Jesuit College had considerable influence in Quebec and throughout New France. It was an educational institution that offered boys primary and secondary schooling. It was also the mother house from which the missionaries left for the evangelization of the Amerindians.
Only the college of Jesuits offered a complete classics course, modeled on the French model. A hydrography course prepared students for the professions of pilot and surveyor. The college had an impressive library and housed the most important apothecary of the colony.
Archaeological excavations have found remains of the college, its chapel and the adjoining church. Several burials from the places of worship have been uncovered. The many objects collected tell us about various aspects of college life and the use of the building as a military barracks after the [British] Conquest.
