|NOTES||Roman Catholic order founded by the Spanish St. Dominic in 1215 in southern France. The novelties of the new order were the obligation to pursue theological study and the mission to preach doctrine, a task previously regarded as the prerogative of bishops and their delegates alone. This mendicant order features a centralized government and organization and emphasizes missionary work and scholarship, thereby combining an active and a contemplative life. A member belongs to the order, not to any one autonomous house, and can be sent anywhere at any time.|
