A cloistered Roman Catholic religious

The Dominican is the image of St. Dominic. As a canon of Osma, before he became an apostole, he was a contemplative. Here is how Jordan of Saxony describes these years at Osma: Day and night he frequented the church, giving himself without interruption to prayer. Redeeming the time by contemplation, he scarcely left the walls of the monastery. — William A. Hinnebusch, O.P., Dominican Spirituality: Principles and Practice.
