Donald Prudlo is the Department Chairperson of Philosophy, Religion and Sociology and Warren Professor of Catholic Studies at the University of Tulsa. His research focuses on the many facets of medieval Dominican thought and history. He has written on the main saints and movements of the order, which includes the birth and development of Thomism. After books on canonization and infallibility, as well as on individual saints and scholars, his next large project will be an intellectual history of the Dominican order from its foundations to the canonization of St. Thomas Aquinas in the fourteenth century.
