This book undertakes to set forth in brief form the origins, the objects, the ideals of the Dominican Order. Pere Jacquin writes as an historian, and he has made full use of the writings of such men as the Blessed Humbert de Romans and Pere Mamachi, as also of the collections of Quetif and Echard, and the more recent scholarly work of Pere Mandonet and Pere Mortier. After a preliminary chapter on the work actually accomplished by St. Dominic, the author passes to the definite organization of the Order. He then treats of the Dominican ideal and of the place occupied by the Order in the long series of religious codies in the Church. He shows how the Friars Preachers were neither monks nor simply Canons Regular, but essentially Friars. The true object of the Order is theological doctrinal teaching, whether in the pulpit or in the Professor's chair. Pere Jacquin then sets forth the means to this end-namely, study quickened by prayer and directed by the various observances of religious life. There then follows a chapter devoted to the religious formation which a Friar Preacher receives, to a sketch of the system of government which is so characteristic of the Order, and finally to the part played in the Order by the Lay-Brethren. Pere Jacquin has a section devoted to the history of the restoration of the Order in France by Pere Lacordaire; but this section has been omitted in the present translation, since it more intimately concerns France than the English speaking countries where the Order is now flourishing.
