Dominican Monk


In the year 2000, there were 5,171 Dominican friars in solemn vows, 917 student brothers, and 237 novices. By the year 2010 there were 5,906 Dominican friars, including 4,456 priests.

A number of other names have been used to refer to both the order and its members.
  • Their identification as Dominicans gave rise to the pun that they were the "Domini canes", or Hounds of the Lord.
  • In England and other countries the Dominican friars are referred to as Black Friars because of the black cappa or cloak they wear over their white habits. Dominicans were Blackfriars, as opposed to Whitefriars for example, the Carmelites or Greyfriars for example, Franciscans. They are also distinct from the Augustinian Friars the Austin friars who wear a similar habit.
  • In France, the Dominicans were known as Jacobins, because their convent in Paris was attached to the church of Saint-Jacques, now disappeared, on the way to Saint-Jacques-du-Haut-Pas, which belonged to the Italian Order of San Giacomo dell Altopascio St. James Sanctus Jacobus in Latin.
