Some 800 years ago Dominic Guzman and his ‘Order of Preachers’ criss-crossed the inhospitable paths of Europe to preach the Gospel and to combat the half-truths of their day. Born of a noble family of Old Castile, a model student, he spurned privilege for a life devoted to Christ. An amazing tale of faith and courage, and of the rich legacy of the Dominicans.
