“The motherhouse of the Salvatorians in Rome – internationality versus German regulation” – The Salvatorian motherhouse near the Vatican was from the beginning and programmatically oriented towards internationality and multiculturalism. Until the Second World War, however, the staff of the Order remained predominantly German. With this profile it was perceived from the outside over the decades with all its positive and negative consequences. The First World War represented a clear break for life in the motherhouse. Until then, life in the house had been dominated by the often varied and very young pupils and students, but this influx ceased in 1915. After the laborious new beginning in the twenties, the motherhouse became more and more a mere headquarter of the Order like many others in Rome.
