Summary/Abstract: The biggest influence on my life and science interests regarding history of social care and education had professors Stanisław Litak (1932–2010) and Gabriele De Rosa (1917–2009). Prof. Litak was always related with Catholic University of Lublin. He was my teacher, master and promoter of my master thesis and PhD thesis. He was a prominent scientist of the history of the Church, especially parishes. The second field of his interests was the history of learning and education. He published the results of his research by means of atlas-cartographical methods. As the excellent expert Church archives he belonged to the most prominent specialists of cartography and historical cartography. My science interests were inspired also by professor Gabriele De Rosa. The prominent historian was also engaged in politics. He belonged to Christian Democracy, envoy to the Italian parliament and senator of Italian Republic. He lectured on universities in Salerno, Padova, Rome. He was performing the function of the of lots of organizations, publishing houses and scientific journals. Among others he was a director of Luigi Sturzo Institute (1979–2006) and operating with it Italian-Polish Historical School (1983–1996), from which I get a scholarship. In 1981 I have also done scientifical training on the University of Sapienza in Rome with him. He was a researcher of Italian Catholic activities, history of the Church, mercy, folk piety and religiosity. Follower of concept of the French school Annales.
