James Driscoll

This bibliographic listing of works in English by and about members of the Order of Friars Preachers actually begins with a translation of the confirmation of the Dominican Order by Pope Honorius III on December 22, 1216. Works and lives of great Dominicans such as Saints Dominic, Catherine of Siena, Thomas Aquinas, Albert the Great, Pope Pius V, and Martin de Porres are listed. Prominent personages such as Fra Angelico, Savonarola, Bartolommeo de las Casas, Samuel Mazzuchelli, Dominic Pire (Nobel Prize recipient), and M. J. La Grange (founder of the Ecole Biblique) also appear in this work. The Dominicans founded colleges and universities around the globe, and their scholarly, historical, and artistic works have illumined the world for almost eight hundred years. This bibliography is an invaluable resource for scholars and researchers covering a wide range of topics.
