Welcome to the Cambridge Priory’s online exhibition for the Jubilee of the English Dominicans, 1221-2021.This is the continuation of the in-person exhibition held from 24th September to 3rd October 2021 at Blackfriars.
Explore the defining events and characters of our history, from 1221 to today through this dynamic online exhibition.
Dominicans are the ‘Order of Preachers’. Nowadays, however, Christians usually want to avoid coming over as ‘preachy’ - so in what way are we all expected to ‘preach’? What can the Dominican tradition teach us all about how to proclaim the gospel, and what lessons can it offer us as we seek to share our faith with a secular age?
Meet the Dominican Friars of today.
Explore Dominican priories from the past and present as a pilgrim!
Do you have questions about faith and meaning?
In 2021, to mark the 800th anniversary of the Dominicans in Britain, a group of Friars followed in the footsteps of the original Friars and made the journey from the Kentish coast all the way to Oxford!
Founded in 1216 as the ‘Order of Preachers’, St Dominic’s Order has now spread throughout the world. Unlike monks, we are ‘itinerant preachers’, which means we live in different communities and travel to preach.
