Father Schweriner, O.P., highlights the history of the Dominican Order from the time St. Dominic received the Papal Blessing for his vision of Christ’s work on earth through to the Order’s expansion during the Middle Ages – to the development of the Order’s use of teaching, music, and art in spreading the Gospel – to the then current state of affairs in the midst of World War I. This short treatise on the Dominican Order serves as a primer for those interested in exploring the origins and development of the Order’s seven hundred year history.
