Product Overview

The spirituality of St. Dominic and his early followers was a dynamic force in thirteenth-century Europe. In this volume the writings of Dominic's early disciples are presented in a fresh, lively translation by Simon Tugwell, O.P., of Blackfriars, Oxford.

The simplicity, ruggedness, and clarity of the Dominicans' biblically-based, Christ-centered spirituality is illustrated in Jean de Mailly's Life of St. Dominic, The Nine Ways of Prayer of St. Dominic,and the writings of Jordan of Saxony, Peter of Rheims, Thomas Agni, and Robert Kilwardby. The importance of preaching in the Dominican tradition is reflected in the book's main selection, Humbert of Romans' Treatise on the Formation of Preachers.

The breadth of Dominican piety represented by these selections and the fine preface by the Master of the Order of Preachers, Father Vincent de Couesnongle, O.P., plus Tugwell's brilliant introduction, called by Spirituality Today the best treatise on Dominican spirituality now available, combine in making this a truly classic volume.
