The Order of Preachers, also known as the Dominican Order or the Dominicans, have been around for over 800 years. The mendicant order is one of the most important in the Catholic Church, and indeed one that has shaped Catholicism as we know it. The Dominicans are best known for their missionary work and evangelization efforts, emphasis on prayer, and teaching. Some of these men and women did extraordinary things, including perform miracles, and as a result they were later canonized by the Church.
