The rich and varied heritage of Dominican spirituality is here portrayed in the lives and teaching of three outstanding reprentatives - the positive way of Thomas Aquinas, the negative way of Meister Eckhart and the mystical-prophetic way of Catherine of Siena. By concentrating on these figures, who perhaps most clearly embody the outstanding features of Dominican spirituality, Richard Woods makes the lives and contibutions of their many sisters and brothers stand out in sharper relief.
