Center for Dominican Studies at Ohio Dominican University
New Dominican Journal Published

COLUMBUS, OH August 27, 2007-- A scholarly journal entitled Dominican Studies has just been published and distributed by The Center for Dominican Studies at Ohio Dominican University.

The project coincides with the 800th Anniversary celebration of the founding of the first Dominican monastery in Prouilhe, France, by Saint Dominic. 

The Center for Dominican Studies joins this celebration in a unique way by opening possibilities for shared study on issues of importance to the church, culture and society through the publication of manuscripts that reflect a body of contemporary wisdom in the Catholic and Dominican traditions.

Featured in this first edition are three commissioned articles written by Dominican scholars Richard  Schenk, OP, Th.D , Carol Dempsey, OP, Ph.D., and Thomas O’Meara, OP, Ph. D.   

In his article Creative Fidelity: Remembrance and Forgetting, Renewal and Accommodation on the 800th Anniversary of the Foundation of Prouille,  Richard Schenk, provides the reader with an historical, challenging and inspirational view of the rich heritage and call to fidelity  bequeathed to the Order by Dominic de Guzman. 

Carol Dempsey’s article, Isaiah: God’s Poet of Light reminds us of the richness and relevance of Isaiah’s message for the contemporary preacher who is challenged to both listen to the Word and act upon it with intelligence and passion for the truth. 

Thomas O’Meara’s article, Power and Display in the Church: Yves Congar’s Critique  takes a critical look, at Yves Congar’s 1963 text Pour une Eglise servante et pauvre (Power and Poverty in the Church).  In O’Meara’s words, “To read Congar today is to be struck by his passion for the future.”

The publishers of this initial journal hope that it will be another valuable venue for sharing “the holy preaching.”
