Simon Tugwell OP
Saint Dominic was one of the most self-effacing of saints: it is as if he hid behnd the works he left behind and the ideals he prompted others to follow. When he died in 1221, the order which he had established, the Order of Preachers, buried him, sadly and affectionately, and then got on with the job he had given them.
Simon Tugwell, a member of the English Dominican Province, works in the Historical Institute of the Order in Rome. His books include The Way of the Preacher (1979), and Early Dominicans which he edited for the Classics of Western Spirituality.
