Dominic and the Order of Preachers by Fr Richard Finn OP
2016 marked the 800th anniversary of the foundation of the Dominican Order of Preachers. This history sets St Dominic and his Order’s developing mission in the context of major social changes through the centuries and across the globe. The story is enriched by contribution of major saints and leading figures such as St Thomas Aquinas, St Catherine of Siena, Girolamo Savonrola, Bartolome de Las Casa, St Martin de Porres. Henri- Dominique Lacordaire and Yves Congar. Particular attention is given to some of the English-speaking provinces.
