Murphysboro Centuries, 13th sacred

The Dominicans - begun by Dominic (Domingo de Guzman), 1170-1221, who had the idea of sending preachers wandering around to combat the heresies that had sprung up (Waldensian/Albigensian) - accepted by Rome in 1216 - since they emphasized preaching and teaching to heretics, there was also an emphasis on learning, that you had to know what the heretics said, and be able to contradict them - therefore the Dominican order began to have a big emphasis on education and learning and soon many Dominicans became faculty members at the new universities springing up all over Europe
