In addition to the social advantages, parents saw a Jesuit or Barnabite boarding school as offering a better environment for learning than universities.
In 1599 Bascape persuaded his own congregation, the Barnabites, to establish a small college at Novara so that Novarese clerics could attend their classes while living under the rule of the seminary.
However, in these years the majority of the Novarese parish clergy, approximately ninety per cent of whom were native to the diocese, received at least part of their training at one or more of the diocesan seminaries, with the Barnabites at Novara, or with the Jesuits of the Scuole Cannobiane.
The most important of these was Carlo Bascape (1550-1615) who had been a collaborator and biographer of Borromeo and had served as general of the Clerics Regular of Saint Paul or Barnabite congregation prior to his appointment to the diocese of Novara in 1593.
