Shhhh. Don’t mind me. I’m over here downloading like a thief!

My “enabler” in this furtive enterprise is Bruce Marshall of Southern Methodist University, who recently told me two things:

  1. There’s a website devoted directly to Dominican history:
  2. That the Dominicans have made available audio recordings of 25 lectures on Dominican History that Fr John F. Hinnebusch, OP, gave in the year 1986. You can see the list of lectures on a the “Lectures in Dominican History” channel on (link). Each lecture lasts about one hour, and don’t let the near-quarter century distance fool you; the quality of the sound is just fine.

I’ve promptly downloaded all 25 lectures for my computer, and I’ll try to outfit them so that I can toss them into an iPod or MP3 player (in downloaded form they are in MOV format, Apple’s QuickTime Movie format).
