ECHA Podcast Artwork v226 Fr Richard Finn OP, a member of the Dominican house in Oxford, gives a lucid and informative account of the establishment of the Dominican Order in England. He covers their growth up to the time of the Reformation, their years in exile on the continent and their return to England in the early 1800s, fleeing persecution there. The support of the wealthy convert William Leigh enabled them to found a flourishing noviciate house in Gloucestershire, in addition to houses in London, Newcastle, Leicester and Oxford. Eventually they were able to establish daughter houses in South Africa, Granada, Edinburgh and Cambridge. They continue today to pursue their charism of preaching and teaching.
