The Life of Saint Dominic (Jarrett)
The Life of Saint Dominic is the preeminent biography of the founder of the Order of Preachers. Bede Jarrett, O.P., follows Dominic de Guzman from boyhood to death, describing his emergence amidst the Great Heresy of the Albigensians, the founding of the Order, the establishment of the nuns, and his commission of brothers in the mission of praise, prayer, and preaching. Richly descriptive and deeply moving, The Life of Saint Dominic is essential reading for all sons and daughters of Saint Dominic, and, indeed, the Church and the world.
Bede Jarrett, O.P., (1888–1948) (1881–1934) was an English Dominican friar and distinguished historian and author. In 1921, he founded Blackfriars Priory at the University of Oxford, and revitalized the Dominican magazine Blackfriars, now New Blackfriars. His books include Mediaeval Socialism, Social Theories in the Middle Ages, and The Emperor Charles IV.
James Sullivan, O.P., is a priest of the Dominican Province of St. Joseph. Formerly the novice master for the Province and the director for the priests’ sabbatical program at the Pontifical North American College in Rome, he currently serves as pastor at St. Pius V Parish in Providence, Rhode Island.
