What is Dominican Theology?

What is Dominican Theology?

On the occasion of the 800th anniversary of the confirmation of the Order of Preachers, which we celebrate from 2016 to 2017, the current print issue of the German theological journal WORT UND ANTWORT (edited by the Northern German province of Dominican Friars 'Teutonia') presents a variety of local Dominican theologies.

We have invited sisters and brothers from all continents and from all branches of the Order—nuns and sisters, lay people and brothers (both friars and priests)—feminists and Thomists, younger and older—to answer the following question: "What is Dominican theology?"

The result—eighteen very different articles—are presented in the original language or English translation on

Several thousand answers more are certainly possible… You are invited to react to the articles on our website. We hope for a lively debate—inside and outside the Order!
