Sisters, Dominican

Resource Toolbox

An order of women founded at Prouille, France in 1205, by Saint Dominic. Many monasteries were established in Europe, a number of which were suppressed during the revolutions which affected Catholic countries from the close of the 18th century. The nuns are strictly cloistered; they recite the Divine Office in choir, engage in manual work, and have achieved various literary and artistic successes. Houses of the order are numerous throughout Europe.
