How the Dominicans were Founded

Just a couple of helps for understanding the sequence: Dominic traveled a bit with his bishop, Diego, and it was during his travels that he sort of got the idea that sacra doctrina was totally needing more exposure. And so he founded the order of preachers. Coincidence?

NB: it's a little incomplete. I got bored. It'll be redone sometime in...the future. Dun dun duuun.

A Quote to Nom on

Were theologians to refuse the help of philosophy, they would run the risk of doing philosophy unwittingly and locking themselves within thought-structures poorly adapted to the understanding of faith. Were philosophers, for their part, to shun theology completely, they would be forced to master on their own the contents of Christian faith, as has been the case with some modern philosophers. Either way, the grounding principles of autonomy which every science rightly wants guaranteed would be seriously threatened. Fides et Ratio, §77
