medieval-religion: Scholarly discussions of medieval religion and culture

Today (8. August) is in the Roman Calendar the feast of St. Dominic, the founder of the Order of Preachers, also known as Dominic of Osma (where he had been a Canon Regular) and, in modern scholarship, as Dominic of Caleruega. Churches of the Anglican Communion also commemorate him on this day. Dominic died in Bologna in 1221. He was canonized in 1234.


Some period-pertinent images of St. Dominic of Caleruega:

a) as portrayed in an originally earlier thirteenth-century panel painting of Sienese origin (ca. 1235-1240; head reworked in its present form ca. 1280-1285) in the Fogg Art Museum, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA:

b) as depicted (at right; at left, St. Francis of Assisi) in a bas-de-page illumination in a copy of the Office for the Dead in a later thirteenth-century psalter and book of hours from Liège (Den Haag, KB, ms. 76 G 17, fol. 69v):
