Description:
The 1877 printing of the Regulations for the Houses begins with Don Bosco's famous treatise on the Preventive System, followed by 10 general articles, then the house regulations themselves. The placement of the treatise before the general articles has given rise to the idea that the general articles should be considered the last chapter of the treatise. A competing idea is that the general articles are just what the 10th one says: "the preliminary articles of our regulations". But the entire 1877 Regulations can be regarded as an introduction to and codification of the Preventive System. More than one succeeding General Chapter adopted precisely that view.

Term type ('EntryTerm' if no other applies)
(1) (2)   
[Initialisms like AGC are regarded as acronyms; a term like 'Bro.' is an abbreviation; an example of short form instead would be the main part of a very long book title (most of DB's book titles! 'Giovane Provveduto' is a short form). A loan term is not translated whereas a calque is. A blend is where two (or more) morphemes or 'word' parts have been combined to form a single term, as in the case of 'austraLasia'. Choose variant when there exists at least one other common form of the term. ]

[Archaic refers to terms that have fallen out of regular use. Deprecated indicates official disapproval or if not disapproval, official abandonment at least. A neologism is a term that has come into play relatively recently - say, since Vatican II, but the time frame can be flexible.]
