Early Dominicans: Selected Writings May 15, 2008
Extensive coverage of the history and practice of Dominican Spirituality. Recommended for anyone considering further investigation of the Order of Preachers and the Dominican Life.
Great Collection of Works Jan 13, 2006
The editor of this volume has put together some amazing works from the early period of the Dominicans. Perhaps what is best about this volume is that it gives the reader the work "On the Formation of Preachers" by Humbert of Romans; to my knowledge, this is the only English translation of what has been called the most important work on homiletics in the Western Church. An absolutely wonderful book, well worth the price.
A Dominican Goldmine! May 5, 2000
It was not until I read Fr. Tugwell's book that I fell in love with the Order of Preachers. This massive collection, beginning with a short history of the Order's beginnings, includes the Primitive Constitutions of the Order, letters of Blessed Jordan of Saxony, and Humbert of Roman's tips on how to preach; any one who reads this volume is sure to have a firm grasp of the Order founded by Saint Dominic. Paints a startling picture of the early years of the Dominican Order. A goldmine!
