Dominican Spirituality

A lecture on Dominican spirituality by Fr. Romanus Cessario, O.P., given at the Dominican House of Studies, Washington, D.C. Fr. Cessario is a Dominican friar of the Eastern Dominican Province of St. Joseph, currently teaching at St. John’s Seminary in Boston.

A printed version of the complete talk can be found in the volume in honor of Father Matthew Lamb entitled Wisdom and Holiness: Science and Scholarship (Sapientia, 2007). Fr. Cessario’s contribution to that volume can be found on pp. 17-45. The last half of his article is on Dominican Spirituality.

Another fine resource for Dominican history and spirituality is the English translation of the French article “The Friars Preachers” from the Dictionnaire de Spiritualité available online at Domcentral.
