  Dominican Order
The Dominican Order, (its formal name, the Order of Preachers, is less common in English) founded by Saint Dominic in the early 13th century, is one of the great mendicant orders[?] of friars that revolutionized religious life in Europe during the high middle ages.
Dominic sought to establish a new kind of order, one that would bring the dedication and systematic education of the older monastic orders like the Benedictines to bear on the religious problems of the burgeoning population of cities, but with more organizational flexibility than either monastic orders or the secular clergy.
His new order was to be a preaching order, trained to preach in the vernacular languages but with a sound background in academic theology.
