“First the bow is bent in study, then the arrow is released in preaching”: such is the image the Dominican Hugh of St-Cher once used to describe the relationship between learning and ministry which his order embodied. Taking that image as its starting-point, this book explores Dominican education during the first century of the order’s life, providing a detailed account of the full reach of the order’s schools, from the simple convent scholae and the practical training they imparted to the specialized studia operated by every province.
